CommonSpirit Health National Nurse Residency Program (NNRP)


Nurse residency programs are the gold standard nation-wide for new graduate nurses as they transition from student to competent nurse. Mercy Medical Center has provided a new graduate nurse residency program since 2011. We are proud to announce that starting with the summer cohort of 2023, new graduates will be able to experience a 12 month, best-in-class, comprehensive, innovative transition-to-practice education program. We will be capitalizing on the ANCC accreditation practice design as we work toward accreditation with our new program.
