Nurse Residency Program

Your Nursing Career Deserves to Be The Best It Can Be!

Community Memorial Health System is proud to announce they are taking applications for their 2020 Nurse Residency Program!  Since program inception (September 2017), CMHS has transitioned 45 newly graduated nurses into the health care system through our Nurse Residency Program. The 2019 cohort was chosen from over 300 applicants.

Application period for the 2020 cohort is June 22 – August 7, 2020 and the program will start October 26, 2020.

The program is based on the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) accreditation standards, and the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) Transition-to-Practice model. Each new graduate nurse is hired into a full time benefited position, and under the supervision of trained Preceptors and Educators, with support from nurse leaders. Our Nurse Residents work through a one-year program which includes a 16-week clinical preceptorship, classroom and simulation activities. The program includes team training opportunities with Graduate Medical Residents, monthly seminars, and team building to support their transition into professional practice.

  • Willingness to commit to the Nurse Residency Program and one year afterward
