Duke University Nurse Residency


I am graduating nursing school in May of 2015 (BSN)! I am interested in Duke University's nurse residency program, but did not find out much information from their website. Anyone know any details or what I should be doing? Thanks!

Yes that's exactly what I was talking about :) So the best thing to do is to be looking out on the HR website next month? Do you know if they hire new grads into the ICU?

They seem to post new grad position at the end of most months. They do hire new grads in the ICU. A Duke HR spoke with my class and said for new grad positions they use a point systems to determine who they interview. You fill out the survey to help them to determine what points to award.

I don't know about the ICUs but many of the other units will have an 8 week orientation.

Specializes in ICU.

All I really know about Duke is their pay is shockingly low for the area. I got offered more than $2.00/hr less at Duke than anywhere else and Duke is the only place I would have had to pay for parking (ridiculous!). That's all I really need to know.

How much is the new grad nurse salary there?
