Strong Memorial Hospital Nurse Residency Programs 

Available to May 2020 Graduates:

  • Surgical ICU Residency
  • Medical ICU Residency
  • Cardiac ICU Residency
  • Operating Room Residency

As a new graduate, residency programs offer more structure and continued education for specialty units that have historically been closed to new graduates. However, you do NOT need to enter a residency to get a job in the hospital!

Many, many units directly hire new graduates, depending on your patient care experiences and resume.

If you are interested in a unit, go to nurse recruitment early and express that interest. Usually, they will let you shadow for 4 hours. This is your golden opportunity! Work hard, be positive, help others, and ask questions.

Be patient, be diligent, and dont give up.
