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.

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.
