Nurse Residency Program

This year-long program helps new graduate nurses in their first professional role ease the transition to practice. With a focus on nursing leadership nurse-driven outcomes and professional development, the curriculum is designed to enhance critical thinking skills and to support a nurse's ability to use outcome data to promote patient safety.

Nurse Externship

For those nursing students who have already completed at least one clinical rotation, a nurse externship allows the opportunity to gain patient care experience. To accommodate your busy life, we offer part-time rotating schedules for all shifts in most clinical specialties. These provide an exceptional opportunity to prepare for the clinical setting after graduation.

Perioperative Fellowship

We have a Perioperative Fellowship Program if you're a registered nurse interested in becoming an OR nurse. The program is offered separately for new graduate nurses and experienced acute care nurses interested in making the transition to the operating room.

Administrative Fellowship

This program provides recent graduates with the opportunity to join our administrative team and gain practical experience in a suburban, community-based health system.

Summer Enrichment Program

The Summer Enrichment Program is a 10-week paid internship that connects diverse students pursuing advanced health-related degrees with experienced administrators and other health care professionals who serve as preceptors and mentors.
