RN Residency Pipeline

Roper St. Francis is committed to nurturing and assisting new nurses as they develop and refine clinical skills and critical thinking. The RN Residency Pipeline consists of recent nursing graduates working alongside the supervision of a Clinical Coach-Registered Nurse throughout their entire individualized orientation to build competence and enhance professional growth. 

The Residency Pipeline position is a full-time, benefit-eligible position which can last up to one year. Once the 12-14 week orientation is complete, Residency Pipeline RN’s will have the opportunity to learn first about new available unit-based positions. If a unit-based position is not obtained within the year, the RN can hold a position in the Mobile Resource Pool.

Residency Requirements:
The program requires applicants to have a current license as a Registered Nurse in the state of South Carolina or other recognized compact state. The candidate must be a graduate of an accredited school or college of nursing. BSN is preferred, or required within five (5) years of hire date. The RN Residency positions are posted based on availability on our Careers section. The orientation consists of a 12-14 week core curriculum with additional training provided for specialty tracks.
