Nurse Residency Program

Congratulations on beginning your exciting new career as a Registered Nurse! Shannon is excited to offer the Vizient/AACN Nurse Residency Program™ which effectively supports newly licensed nurses as they transition into their first professional roles. We are SO glad that you are here!

Shannon’s Nurse Residency Program is designed for new graduate nurses who have less than one (1) year of experience, independent of the hiring unit. This Nurse Residency Program is a one (1) year program designed as monthly 4-hour seminar sessions where you will hear from some of our top leaders across the organization and collaborate on an evidence-based practice project pertinent to your unit and/or Shannon. Built on an evidence-based curriculum developed by experts locally, from academic medical centers and nursing schools across the country, the program focuses on four critical areas, which include leadership, quality outcomes, evidence-based practice and the professional nursing role.
