Job Description:

New Graduate Nurse Residency - Grady Health System

Deadline to apply:  October 7, 2017 ( Must be scheduled to graduate by December 31, 2017)


Next Nurse Residency Class will start in February/early March 2018!


Grady Health System Nurse Residency program provides the novice nurse with the knowledge base and skill set needed to transition to competence in clinical nursing practice. While providing the needed skills to meet the organization goals and mission, the program provides nurses with the leadership skills to work collaboratively within a multidisciplinary team. The program bridges the gap between undergraduate education and “real-life” professional nursing practice, delivering state-of-the art care.


The Grady RN Residency program is partnered with what was the University Heath Consortium (UHC), and is now Vizient in the design and delivery of curriculum and methodologies according to the standards and guidelines applicable to Vizient Residency Programs and AACN.


The Grady RN Residency Program is required for all novice nurses and advanced beginners. This program is one year in length. Vizient and the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) have demonstrated that one year of participating in a RN residency program affords the novice nurse transition as an insider with the skills and knowledge needed to provide quality safe care.


If you are selected to participate in our onsite interviews, they will be scheduled during the 3rd week of October 2017. Due to the high number of applicants we will not be able to invite everyone in for an onsite interview. Thanks so much in advance
