Transition to Practice Programs
New Graduate Nurse Residency
Rady Children’s Hospital offers three New Graduate Nurse Residency cohorts annually – spring, summer and fall. Each cohort is a one-year comprehensive education and training program designed specifically to transition newly-graduated Registered Nurses from students to safe, competent and professional health care practitioners. Our program provides numerous opportunities for clinical and professional growth in nursing practice from the very start. This is accomplished through case-based learning, simulation, mentoring and debriefing groups, preceptor-guided clinical experience, and wellness support.
Registered Nurse: New to Pediatrics Program
For experienced registered nurses with a passion to work in pediatrics, Rady Children’s offers opportunities to achieve this goal!
We periodically offer training programs in the following specialties: New to Pediatrics, New to Neonatal ICU, and New to Pediatric Emergency Department. Each training program is unique; with curriculum and clinical training tailored to each nurse based on former experience. Our customized orientation to pediatrics is approximately 8 weeks, depending on the unit, and includes unit based education classes as well as preceptor-guided clinical experience.
To qualify, a registered nurse must have a minimum of one year nursing experience. Acute care and/or critical care nursing experience highly preferred.
