Graduating from the Classroom to Clinical Nursing

Unity Health's RN Residency Program is designed to ensure nursing graduates enjoy a smooth transition from an entry-level nurse to an advanced beginner nurse by providing a unique onboarding experience created for new graduates to help them become confident members of the Unity Health team.

Through the RN Residency Program, new nurses learn how to: 

  • Develop a high level of competence 
  • Communicate effectively in an inter-professional team environment 
  • Develop decision-making skills related to clinical judgment and performance 
  • Perfect conflict resolution and critical thinking skills 
  • Improve quality patient care  

This six-month program offers an extended onboarding for new nurses including ongoing classes, hands-on clinical skills and Laerdal® SimMan scenario training. Following the transition to preceptorship, further learning opportunities are provided through scheduled classes.

As a New Graduate RN you can apply for any current full-time RN position and indicate on your application that you are interested in the RN Residency Program.
