- Aug 29, '09 by smn2010surprisingly, there are even more than these because hospitals are creating their own new grad rn programs (which range from a mere 12-weeks to a lengthy 18 months!). i found that when you go directly to hospital websites, these hospitals now have a dedicated page that discusses the components of their new grad program along with forms, application process, program start dates, etc.
your list is great!!! it will definitely give people a head start in the right direction.
there is also another thread located at:

- Aug 31, '09 by shoegalRNHere's another one:
Truman Medical Center-Kansas City MO
They offer a 6 month New Grad Residency Program for Critical Care (CCU, MICU, SICU).
They just started this program last year.
- Aug 31, '09 by JomoNurse12 months!? That's an awful long time for a nursing orientation/residency, girlfriend!
- Aug 31, '09 by shoegalRNQuote from JomoNurseI don't know if you were referring to my post, but the actual program is only 6 months long. The program was just started by the hospital last year. I don't know if you are saying 12 months is a long time to BE in a new grad program, of if the program itself has not been established long enough.12 months!? That's an awful long time for a nursing orientation/residency, girlfriend!
- Sep 5, '09 by holleritupgreat info! thanks
- Sep 5, '09 by smn2010inova health system in northern virginia has several nurse residency program. there are about 6 hospitals plus other facilities (heart & vascular institute, emergency centers, urgent care centers, etc.) within this system and each, individual, hospital maintains their own nurse residency program. the icu program is 18 months long at one of their hospitals!!!
for those that think a 12-month residency program is too long, you may want to review the information/research provided by the aanc/uhc (http://www.aacn.nche.edu/education/nurseresidency.htm) to see what the program consists of. it can't be completed in a mere 12 weeks, like most hospitals. many hospitals do not participate in the aanc/uhc program; but they have created their own based upon what the aacn/uhc established. the hospitals that are participating in the program must adhere to the aanc/uhc guideline; but the hospitals that have created their own program are even better for new grads.
some hospitals allow the new grads to rotate to through all of their departments during the 12-month program. the new grad spends a week on basic new employee orientation followed by several weeks in the classroom (skills lab, ekg/ecg training, central lines/ivs, etc.). once you pass your classes you then spend 2-3 months in each area/department (med/surg, peds, l&d, icu, etc.). the new grad gets to identify their top 3 or 4 areas of interest then rotates to those departments. if the new grad determines that the area they are in is a good "fit", they apply to stay in that department and they no longer rotate. the remainder of their new grad program will then evolve around that one department (one-on-one preceptor, one day a week classroom, additional skills labs associated with the department (especially if it is a "specialty" unit), one day a month meeting with all new grads to see how everyone is doing, etc.)
for those that think 12-months is too long... 18-months is even better!!! whether your are in a 12-month or an 18-month program...by the time you end your nurse residency program you are no longer "green." you are not thrown out to the wolves--alone. you are definitely "comfortable" being on the floor, your self esteem has not been damaged, you are confident, etc. i would take a well organized 12 or 18-month nurse residency program over a 12-week, 4 month "orientation/preceptorship" any day without hesitation!!!
if you are accepted into a new grad rn residency program....enjoy and gain as much knowledge/experience as you can!!!
- Sep 17, '09 by IrynaHi ! am looking for the RN residency program in seattle( WA) and area .. so far no success ... I am not gonna give up but slowly loosing my hope ... looks like many hospitals shut down that program( Evergreen Hospital , Northwest hospital) and other ones have limited space( UW Medicine , Providence ). Thinking to start looking outside of the state
- Sep 17, '09 by rigsdoes the RN Residency accept foreign grads? i graduated, march 2008. just passed the nclex this month.
- Sep 18, '09 by MissBrittanyRNI agree that 12 months is not too long. I am a new grad, and call me insecure (because I am to a point) but I will gladly take all of the training possible to be the best nurse that I can be, to protect my patients and my license.
