Hello all,

I recently graduated in June from the ADN program at UCBA in Cincinnati. I moved up here from Wilmington where I worked as ED registration @ NHRMC and always hoped to get back on there as 7 years away from the beach is WAY too long. I have had 0 luck getting selected for an interview there but then I came across the Nurse Academy at CFV. I had a great conversation with the recruiter and feel good about the possibility about getting on there.

Has anyone gone through or currently in this program? IF how how do you like it and how was the interview process? On paper this looks like an amazing opportunity and exactly what I was looking for as a new grad.

I'm into my 3rd week of the New Grad Academy for the Emergency Department at CFV. I think the academies offer alot of structure and support which really helps with transition into the real world. It also sometimes feels like you are still in school (but getting paid!) because we are taking a million classes on policy and such. The Academy also builds camraderie which has been great for the many new nurses that relocated here.

I work at SRMC and will graduate from Nursing school in May. I really like my hospital, but an considering the benefits if attending a nurse residency program. What is it like behind in the program? What do people who we've through the program or are currently enrolled think of the program?

I haven't started yet but I have friends that have gone through them and think they are really.good learning experience. She was in the one at Wake Med and loved it. I apllied for a few of these internships because I think there is a gap from what we learn in school and the real world of nursing. Eight week preceptor following a nurse around or 16-22 specialized training and a year of monthly meetings and support makes the benefit of the programs crystal clear for me.
