HSS Nursing Residency Programs

Career development is both the provision of educational and professional growth and the delivery of programs which can prepare a nurse to begin a career or transition their career in a new direction. This includes programs offered at HSS such as the Perioperative Nurse Residency Program.

The Residency is a focused educational program consisting of a planned sequence of classroom, laboratory, and clinical experiences for the purpose of transitioning new nurse graduates and/or experienced nurses with an interest in perioperative nursing to the practice area of the Operating Room.

This evidence-based approach to developing a highly valued, specialized workforce is mutually beneficial as it affords the employer the opportunity to develop the nurse learner consistent with the philosophy and standards of the HSS organization and Magnet Nurse culture of caring and safety.
