The Nurse Residency Program goals are:

  • Develop effective decision-making skills related to clinical judgment and safety in the healthcare environment.
  • Provide clinical nursing leadership, in conjunction with the interprofessional team, at the point of care.
  • Incorporate evidence-based practice to inform decision-making at the point of care.
  • Encourage professional progression and a commitment to lifelong learning.

Program Objective and Emphasis

The structured program adopts the Vizient/AACN Nurse Residency Program model. Each resident is assigned a preceptor who guides the hands-on clinical experience. The program prepares nursing graduates to:

  • Care for patients with increasing levels of acuity and complexity in the hospital setting.
  • Develop clinical nursing leadership at point of care.
  • Improve patient safety and quality of care.
  • Foster critical thinking skills.
  • Bring evidence-based and research based practice to the bedside.
  • Strengthen the commitment to the profession of nursing and develop individual career goals.
  • Facilitate clinical and leadership skills necessary to be a successful member of the health care team.


To support new nurses in their career, the program curriculum includes:

  • A 4-day general nursing orientation for all nurses new to Englewood Health.
  • Unit/specialty-specific orientation (duration is personalized to your role).
  • A 3-day introduction to the Nurse Residency Program following the hospital orientation. This introduction includes an IV course with certificate and continuing education credits.
  • Participation in monthly four-hour seminars over 12 months, which may include lectures, group work, simulation activities, and other learning activities.
