Memorial Nursing Residency Program Enrolls First Class

72 Currently Receiving Training; 500 More Expected in the Next Year


More than 70 nurses are enrolled in a new residency program that is designed to provide individual learning opportunities, establish bonds between future colleagues, and address an important workforce issue.

While the training nurses receive will lead to success in clinical practice, Memorial Healthcare System leaders also point to the benefits of working alongside doctors enrolled in its Graduate Medical Education (GME) program.

The influx of new nurse graduates will also help ease staffing issues expected in the coming years as baby boomers begin to retire. Approximately 500 graduating registered nurses are expected to be hired and participate in the program in the next year.

Both the nurse’s residency and physician-focused GME are part of Memorial’s transition from a community-based healthcare provider to an academic medical center.

“These nurses will grow and develop their skills at six hospitals, each which offer diverse learning opportunities,” said Maggie Hansen, Memorial Healthcare System senior vice president and chief nursing executive.

“They’ll also be an active part of delivering the patient and family-centered care that has been a critical part of our success.” The nurse’s program will focus on leadership, patient outcomes, and professional roles.

The one-year curriculum offers training in all specialties, including surgery, pediatrics, critical care, emergency, and labor and delivery.

Memorial Healthcare System is one of the largest public healthcare systems (by revenue) in the U.S. and a national leader in quality care and patient satisfaction. It is highly regarded for its patient Nursing Residency Program –2and family-centered approach at facilities that include Memorial Regional Hospital, Memorial Regional Hospital South, Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital, Memorial Hospital West, Memorial Hospital Miramar, Memorial Hospital Pembroke, and Memorial Manor nursing home.
