Program Highlights

Our Nurse Residency Program offers track options to allow nurse residents to work in areas that match their interests and career goals.

New grads hired into the residency program are full-time employees who are eased into the role of professional nurse through didactic learning sessions and hands-on clinical training, all under the guidance and support of our professional nursing staff and nursing education specialists. 

Additionally, our Nurse Residents benefit from:

  • Experienced preceptors in all clinical areas who provide support and guidance
  • The knowledge and expertise provided by our VUMC experts
  • Focused training at the department level
