Schneck’s Nurse Residency Program Transitions New Nurses into Professional Practice
Seymour, Indiana—Finding your first job as a nurse can be a challenge. Candidates need to find a place where they feel comfortable and get the support they need to progress from a novice nurse to a competent and experienced nurse.
Schneck’s leading-edge, evidence-based Nurse Residency Program in partnership with Vizient fosters a positive experience for all newly licensed nurses as they transition into practice. This cohesive program, which is required for all new graduate nurses, allows nurses to receive the same training and professional development no matter if they will be practicing in the medical center or at one of Schneck’s physician practices.
Schneck’s Nurse Residency Program is one year in duration with bi-monthly meetings, and is designed to support the new graduate nurse’s transition from advanced beginner to competent professional. The program does not take the place of hospital or unit orientation, but instead focuses on leadership, quality outcomes, and the professional role of the nurse.
“Research has shown that New Nurse Residents develop improved confidence, competence, communication skills, and leadership capabilities,” said Billie Edwards, Nurse Educator/Nurse Residency Program Coordinator. “The goal of the program is to assist the new nurse in acquiring the professional practice skills necessary to become a successful partner of the healthcare team.”
