New Grad RN

New Nurse Grad Fall 2024 cohort now accepting applications!
Get hired first or get licensed first - you decide!

At Northern Light Health, we believe in helping our new graduate nurses transition from academics to professional practice, which is why some of our member organizations participate in a nurse residency program. The 12-month program includes monthly workshops, simulation sessions, group discussions and an evidence-based practice project. Others have a local curriculum to support and develop newly licensed nurses.
The Nurse Residency Program consists of monthly workshops, quarterly simulation experiences and an evidence-based practice project over an 11-monthperiod. The residency program is a commitment of 12 hours per month and is included as one of your scheduled 12 hour work shifts in a 36 hour workweek. The program is required for all new graduate nurses, with the goal of assisting the resident with the transition from advanced beginner to competent professional nurse.
