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 teaching you, but preparing you.
Tanner's Nurse Residency Program provides new nurses with the opportunity to accept a nursing position within Tanner Health System and pairs them with some of our most experienced nursing professionals.
Our 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
