Vanderbilt University Medical Center is proud to offer a year-long Nurse Residency Program to help you navigate your role as a graduate nurse. We are committed to helping you stay on course to deliver safe, effective, quality patient care as you onboard into the clinical setting as a healthcare professional.
Nurse Residents are recently graduated nurses with a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in Nursing and less than six month nursing experience.
We offer Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall start dates. Start date options vary based on area hired and successful NCLEX completion.
As a new nurse, we will guide your transition to professional practice by supporting your orientation and ongoing professional development needs. Throughout the year you will focus on delegation and time management, patient engagement, diversity, nursing quality and safety, research and evidence-based practice, ethical decision making, and building your own emotional toolkit.
Choose your starting destination from these different track options.
