Nurse Residency

The Genesis Nurse Residency Program assists newly licensed nurses through the transition from student to professional nurse. The program provides the newly licensed nurse extra guidance, education, mentoring, and socialization while enhancing both critical thinking and clinical reasoning skills. The Nurse Residency Program also helps newly licensed nurses to identify and apply concepts of evidence-based practice.

The Genesis Nurse Residency Program, along with the initial onboarding orientation and unit based preceptorship provide the newly licensed nurse a comprehensive program to adapt to their new career.

The newly licensed nurse will be provided education and support by: 

  • Attending five, three hours sessions over the course of one year. 
  • Learning the patient centered care, teamwork, communication, safety, and leadership related topics utilized at Genesis. 
  • Discussion of clinical experiences, work place concerns, and success stories. 
  • Support for competency development as a registered nurse. 
  • Networking with other newly licensed registered nurses. 
  • Highlighting their department’s evidence-based improvement projects. 
  • Advanced Practice Nurse facilitation of the program. 
  • Participation in a full day of the Nursing Partnership Council with their unit representative to learn how shared governance empowers staff in decision making and control over practices.
