Exceptional care starts with exceptional nurses

For generations, nurses at Tanner Health System have been part of a unique, patient-centered tradition of neighbors caring for neighbors.

Our nurses deliver high-quality care in an environment that recognizes compassion and rewards multidisciplinary teamwork. We strive to provide an optimal work environment for our nurses by promoting safe nurse-to-patient ratios. Nurses receive extremely competitive compensation and benefits, including specialty differential pay as well as weekend and night shift differential pay. Tanner’s human resources professionals routinely survey compensation packages throughout metro Atlanta to ensure the organization’s benefits and compensation programs are competitive to attract and retain top-tier nursing professionals.

Our team members are Advancing Health. Simply put, this means Tanner is expanding the possibilities of health in our community, providing access to the advanced care our patients need. We know it takes much more than medicine. And we’re prepared to deliver it.

Tanner Nurse Residency Program

Your nursing program has done a lot to teach you about the fundamentals of nursing. Where your formal education leaves off, Tanner Health System begins, not only educating you, but preparing you.

The Tanner Nurse Residency Program pairs graduate nurses — including registered nurses and licensed practical nurses — with some of our most experienced nursing professionals, giving you the confidence to practice at the top of your licensure. Tanner’s nursing residency lasts about 12 weeks, pairing hands-on training in a clinical setting with online coursework, classroom instruction and mentoring from our nursing experts. The residency begins with eight-hour days for the first four weeks, then rolls into traditional 12-hour shifts.

Nurses gain insight and have an opportunity to experience nursing in a range of clinical areas, including:

  • Behavioral health
  • Cardiac care
  • Critical care
  • Emergency care
  • Home health/hospice care
  • Maternity care
  • Medical-surgical care
  • Surgical services

In addition, Tanner helps graduate nurses prepare for their licensure testing, ensuring nurses are ready to pass their boards and practice exceptional care, getting their careers off to a fantastic start.
