A graduation ceremony for the first registered nurse (RN) residency class at Northwest Health will take place at 6 p.m. Friday (May 17). Eighteen nurses will graduate from the program.
The RN residency program at Northwest Health was launched to help new graduate nurses to transition into independent practice with “competence, confidence and commitment,” according to a news release.
“We are dedicated to providing an excellent learning and development experience,” said RN Debbi Neece, nurse residency coordinator. “RN residents are supported by a team of leaders who are generous with their knowledge and experience. The 12-month program includes knowledge and competency assessments, confidence surveys, virtual simulation, married-state preceptorship and monthly live sessions with other residents, in addition to other learning opportunities.”
Program participants also develop a project.
The deadline to apply for the September 2019 RN Residency 12-month program is July 12. More information is available by calling Neece at 479-757-5594 or online, within the Careers section of the website.
