Nurse Residency Program

The Nurse Residency Program at CHOP is a 12-month program designed for new graduate nurses.

Our program is based on the Vizient/AACN Nurse Residency Program that helps transition new nurses into clinical roles and builds their confidence. CHOP’s Nurse Residency Program also includes a focus on leadership, patient outcomes and the role of the professional nurse.

The Program Includes:

  • An evidence-based curriculum
  • Mandatory seminar days that include group discussions, simulations and interactive exercises
  • Development of an evidence-based practice project to showcase at the completion of the program

At the completion of the Nurse Residency Program, participants practicing in the inpatient setting may be promoted to a Clinical Nurse position. Nurses are eligible to transfer to a different department once they have been in their position for one year.

About the Position

Nurse Residents may be hired directly onto a specific unit or hired to rotate through different units in an ICU or a medical/surgical track. Nurse Residents that rotate are assigned to a unit for several weeks before rotating to another area.

Nurse Residents may be hired for part-time or full- time positions. Many work 8- or 12-hour shifts. Shifts may be nights or rotate, depending on the needs of the department. All positions are benefits-eligible.
