Are you a registered nurse with less than one year of experience? Or will you graduate from a nursing program by May 2018? Mission Health invites you to learn more about our New Graduate RN Residency Program at an Open House on Thursday, January 25.
The program is open to any new nurses in the community, as well as current Mission Health team members. You’ll learn about opportunities in many practice areas across Mission Health and talk with nursing managers and directors. You’ll even be able to begin the application process for the program.
The program offers year-long, full-time paid nursing positions. These give new nurses the opportunity to grow in their nursing practice and gain clinical experience across a variety of settings in a supportive environment that includes mentoring, professional development and peer support. Areas of specialty may include Behavioral Health, Emergency Services, ICU/Critical Care, Maternal/Newborn/NICU, Surgical Services, Pediatrics and/or Staffing Pool.
The program is offered at multiple locations throughout Mission Health, as well as several of our regional hospitals in western North Carolina.
Qualified applicants must have less than one year of experience as a registered nurse. In addition, applicants must have graduated from a program accredited by the National League of Nursing Accredited Commission (NLNAC) or Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) and must have a North Carolina RN license by the date of employment. Five references, including at least two from clinical instructors or supervisors, are required. Successful applicants must make a one-year commitment to the program.
The event will be hosted at 1 Hospital Drive (6th floor) in Asheville; new nurses can drop in between 4:30 and 7 pm to learn more.
