RN job vs new grad residency program

Posted

Hi all!

In your experience, which one do you think is better: entry level position as an RN (assuming that actually find that job) or starting as a new grad resident? I will graduate next summer with my BSN, and I am exploring my options.

Thank you!

New graduate residency. It will help you transition from student to new nurse. New grads have a better retention rate after one year when they go through a residency program.
