Graduation Ceremony for Inaugural Nurse Residency Class at Northwest Health May 17

A graduation ceremony for the first RN Residency Class at Northwest Health is being held Friday, May 17, at 6 pm at Northwest Medical Center-Springdale. Eighteen nurses will graduate from the program.

The RN residency program at Northwest Health was launched to ensure that new graduate nurses can transition to independent practice with competence, confidence and commitment.

“We are dedicated to providing an excellent learning and development experience,” said Debbi Neece, RN, Nurse Residency Coordinator. “RN residents are supported by a team of leaders who are generous with their knowledge and experience. The 12-month program includes knowledge and competency assessments, confidence surveys, virtual simulation, married-state preceptorship and monthly live sessions with other residents, in addition to other learning opportunities.”

Each participant also develops a special project.

The deadline to apply to join the September 2019 RN Residency 12-month program is July 12. For more information, contact Debbi Neece at (479) 757-5594 or visit the Careers section on the NorthwestHealth.com website.
