New Grad Med Surg

  1. What is the best New Grad Med Surg program in the Bay area? I THINK I have decided to start there, but I want to make sure it is a very supportive program etc.

    I think it is hard to say which hospital has the best new grad program. There are too many factors that influence whether an RN will sink or swim in his/her first job. Having a program just for new grads is a starting point. What you might do is ask personnel about their retention rate of nurse who are new grads. Asks how the new grad program differs from a new hire program. Ask what is the general length of time spent precepting on a med-surg unit before going solo?
