About Our Program

One-year Nurse Residency Program for new graduate nurses

The Nurse Residency program is designed to help new graduate nurses transition from an entry level to a competent, professional nurse who provides excellent patient care. Our program focuses on the development of clinical judgment and critical thinking skills. The Nurse Residency program at Hennepin Healthcare is open to all new graduate nurses hired by the hospital. Therefore, at Hennepin Healthcare, you apply for a job, not a program. New cohorts are started as often as necessary.
