If you are graduating from nursing school soon, you are undoubtedly starting to think about your first nursing job. For many of you, that will involve participating in a nurse residency program. In this episode, we’ll discuss what nurse residency programs are, why they are valuable, how they are structured, and what to look for when choosing one.

A big thank-you to HCA Healthcare for sponsoring this episode. HCA Healthcare provides new grad nurses opportunities to transition into practice with extra support through their nurse residency program. Learn more about their programs throughout the United States here.
