Are you a new nurse entering the workforce?
Don’t be nervous…our Nurse Residency Program will help you hit the ground running! 

The Nurse Residency journey begins with orientation week, which includes a full-day Nurse Residency Program orientation. We discuss program expectations, perform a medication safety simulation, review how to detect a deteriorating patient, and more!

The first six months of the program include structured practice-based learning with a preceptor and biweekly educational sessions. In addition, Nurse Residents will attend biweekly meetings to discuss their progress while they are working with a preceptor to ensure that their learning needs are met. During the second six months, nurse residents are paired with a nurse mentor to provide additional support as they transition to a competent, professional nurse. The program was designed to increase confidence in the first year as a nurse through support and learning opportunities to ease the transition to practice for novice nurses.

The Nurse Residency Program at Glens Falls Hospital is accredited with distinction as a Practice Transition Program by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation in Practice Transition Programs.
