    Hi JJmath215,

    That's wonderful news about St. Francis! My question though is, you mention "new grad residency program". I was under the impression that St. Francis doesn't have a new grad residency program. They give 3 weeks of classroom learning and then 3 weeks with a preceptor and then you're on your own. How was it for you? Did you still receive support after the 3 week preceptorship was over?
    That is absolutly not true!! My residency was 6 months long as a new grad!! It was amazing and very supportive! After a year I switched to a critical care area and I had another 3 month orientation with a resource after that! This hospital is very supportive and you will always feel supported by other nurses!! Good luck

    Any OR nurses at either hospital?? I'd love to ask you some questions! I'm at another CT hospital and will be looking to be at a hospital closer to home in a few years.
