Versant New Graduate Nurse Residency Program™ at Nemours Children’s Hospital
Nemours Children’s Hospital (NCH) has partnered with Versant® to offer a New Graduate RN Residency program. This one-year program includes education and training designed to transition newly graduated registered nurses from students to safe, competent professionals.
The program's main goals are:
- to provide a comprehensive, standardized approach designed to transition a new graduate RN into professional practice
- to continuously improve the quality of patient care through the ongoing development of competent and safe beginning level clinical nurses
A formalized residency program will benefit the patients and families, the professional practice environment, and the organization as a whole through the focus of quality, safety and the patient experience. The program is also grounded in evidence-based practice and competency validation.
The next cohort (Orlando only) will begin in July 2018.
