Hi ! 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

I hear you! I graduated in June '09 joined Americorps and am still looking for a residency program in WASHINGTON STATE!!! I didn't realize how difficult it would become to find a residency program or to start working at a hospital. ANYONE, IF THERE IS ANY HOPE PLEASE PLEASE LET ME KNOW. Meanwhile, my search goes on...

No. You have to pass the NCLEX to practice in the US. The hospitals will not even consider you if you have not passed it.

Hope this helps yall in your search.

I thought that Stony Brook University Medical Center was in Stony Brook....have they opened up a new hospital in Deer Park?

This is a very specific question but maybe someone could help. I am looking for information about the ER nurse residency program at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospitals, New York. I cant find any information online. Does anyone happen to know?

Do any of them accept current nurses who have never worked in a hospital but want to transition to acute care?

Can anyone please tell me that how does the residency program look like? I mean how many hours per week? are all the hours in the mornings or it includes some night duties too?

I am one semester away from graduating. After that I will take state boards some where in August. Can you get residency before passing the NCLEX?

I would appreciate any input.....thanks!

Thanks very much for the helpful list. Looking for work is such a time consuming task; I would much rather be putting that time into studying for the NCLEX.

Awesome thread! I have been spending hours on the net trying to find this kind of information. Alot of the residency programs I have found seem to be only for bsn's. I am hoping to find a NICU position and am willing to re-locate, although I would prefer to stay in the southern ky, northern tenn area.

What exactly is a nursing residency program? Are the programs a way to gain experience in the nursing field as a new graduate? Also, does any one know of any nursing residency programs in Minnesota? And last question (sorry), when do you apply for them? Thanks!
