The Nurse Residency Program at Roper St. Francis is a one-year program designed to support a newly licensed RN’s transition from student to professional nurse. The program is focused on leadership, quality, safety and professional development.
Any hospital-based RN hired with less than six months experience as an RN. Nurse Residents enter the program through two channels:
- Unit-based: Newly licensed RN hired directly to a clinical unit.
- RN Pipeline: Newly licensed RN hired into an RN Pipeline position within the Mobile Resource Pool (MRP); will orient on up to three units over 12 – 14 weeks with additional training provided for specialty tracks. Once clinical orientation is complete, Pipeline RN’s will have the opportunity to learn first about available unit-based positions. If a unit-based position is not obtained within the year, the RN can hold a position in the MRP.
