Congratz on your new job. I would like to know more about the SB residency program. what is the criteria and how can we apply for it?
Basically, if you are a new grad or new RN with a BSN and have not worked as a grad nurse or RN elsewhere, you are automatically placed in the residency program if you are hired to work at Stony Brook. That's it! You don't apply for the residency program per se, it's automatic if you're hired with the criteria I mentioned above. I believe you have to have earned your BSN within the last year or two as well, not sure exact timeframe. You don't have to be a graduate of Stony Brook's nursing program either. We have grads from other NY nursing schools and even some from other states like PA and VA. You just have to get the job first to get in.
