New Graduate In-Patient Residency
Anticipated Program Start Date: April 2024
Applicants can check the status of their application via the HSS Careers Website at any point in time by logging onto www.hss.edu/careers
The In-Patient Acute Care Residency program is for new graduate nurses transitioning from student to novice. The HSS Department of Nursing is committed to supporting new nurses with rich and rewarding educational and patient care experiences.Hospital for Special Surgery Nurse Residency Program was awarded Accreditation by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s for the Practice Transitions Program.
The Inpatient residency program is exclusive to new graduates from an accredited BSN program. The residency program runs for one year from date of hire. New graduate RNs are hired into one cohort. The cohort meets throughout the orientation process, until the one year anniversary that includes the mentorship portion of the program. Clinical orientation will be a minimum of 12 weeks and is individualized for the learner as needed; the goal is to ensure all clinical competencies are met.
The program is divided into three time frames: 1) general orientation, 2) clinical orientation, and 3) mentoring. The general orientation process is comprised of classroom/didactic learning for approximately 2 weeks. The clinical orientation phase allows for the new graduates work with a consistent preceptor. During this time, the new graduate nurse also spends time shadowing members of the interdisciplinary team. Shadowing helps the new graduate nurse to become familiar with relevant care team roles and learn how to interact with colleagues in everyday practice. This experience helps the new graduate nurse become familiar with resources in the practice environment and observe the experiences of their patients in different clinical areas.
The Clinical orientation process is then closely followed by a Clinical Education Specialist and is structured with weekly objectives and skills. Bi-weekly individual meetings with the new graduate, preceptor, clinical education specialists and patient care directors serve to evaluate effective transition and progress throughout the program.
The mentoring phase begins during the second month of the orientation. Each cohort meets on a monthly basis for the first 6 months, then every other month until the year anniversary. Monthly meetings have three components: 1) knowledge building educational component, 2) “shared experience” component and 3) mentorship component. Regularly scheduled meetings provide a supportive environment, which allows new graduate RNs to gain confidence in their abilities to cope with the day-to-day challenges of nursing practice.
