RN Residency Program

The Freeman Health System Professional Development Department helps graduating nurses transition into their first professional nursing role by offering evidence-based learning and working experiences that promote confidence, critical thinking skills and excellence in care.

Hands-on, Unit-Focused Curriculum

The RN Residency Program is a one-year interactive program designed for newly graduating nurses from both associate and bachelor level nursing programs. This evidence-based program focuses on patient outcomes, leadership, professional roles and unit-specific education. The program aligns with the Institute of Medicine's Core Competencies that enable residents to practice key aspects of providing patient-centered care, working in interdisciplinary health teams, employing evidence-based practice, applying quality improvement and utilizing informatics.

Supportive Learning Environment

Nurse Residents get the opportunity to work together to build on their knowledge by completing didactics, patient simulations, anatomical dissections and a capstone poster project with their peers. The program focuses on key aspects such as teamwork, collaboration, cooperation and supporting one another throughout the duration of the program.

Units participating in the RN Residency Program include: Cardiology, Intensive Care, Cardiac/Medical, Transitional Care, Medical, Ortho/ Neuro and General Surgery.
