Starting a career of excellence.
New graduates are a vital part of our nursing teams, and we want them to have a smooth transition from academia to practice. That’s why we created our Nurse Residency program. Offered for two years rather than one, this program helps new grads build their skills and knowledge while supporting their competence and confidence. Facilitators guide monthly discussions, serve as experienced nurse experts, and guide the residents’ evidence-based project efforts. Seminar topics include:
- Work/Life Balance, Stress Management
- Hand-off, Delegation, Organization/Prioritization, Conflict Management
- Falls/Pain Management
- Medication Administration
- Management of the Changing Patient
- Evidence-Based Practice
- Skin Care/Infection Control
- Cultural Competency/Ethical Decision-Making
- Personal and Professional Risk
- End-of-Life Care
- Professional Development
- Graduation/Evidence-Based Practice Project Presentation
Throughout the program, you’ll have opportunities to work with our expert colleagues and subject-matter experts while focusing on things like skill enhancement, critical-thinking application and career development. During the second year of the program, residents will work individually with nurses to identify learning needs and goals while focusing on career development. With the Mount Carmel Nurse Residency program, you’ll be part of a program that supports your academic-to-practice transition while supporting your career growth.
If you're searching for your first nursing job, we provide a welcoming environment, enhanced support for the transition from college to practice, and the chance to put your abilities to the test and find the position that will help you advance in your career. At Mount Carmel, you’ll spend your entire career being challenged, growing, developing, supporting new innovations and learning every day. And with the spectrum of opportunities – outpatient, hospice, population health, insurance, academia and more – your career can be as varied as the work you do.
We strive to give new graduates all the support they need to grow, which is why we prefer they not apply to positions marked “experienced candidates.”
