Nurse Residency

Holy Spirit welcomes new nurses into the profession with our Nurse Residency Program. Targeted to graduate nurses or nurses with less than one year of experience, this nine-month, transition-to-practice program begins after the two-week hospital and nursing orientation.

Our nurse residents attend meetings with both didactic and group activities that focus on clinical skills and professional issues that relate specifically to new nurses. The meetings also provide a venue for the sharing of experiences and peer support, thereby creating a support network for our new nurses. Through Holy Spirit’s Nurse Residency Program, new nurses build skills and confidence in a professional work environment.
