RN New Graduate Residency Program

Why the Mercy Medical Center Redding Rock Solid RN New Graduate Residency Program?

Mercy Medical Center’s Rock Solid Nurse Residency Program provides up to 28 weeks of in-depth, evidence-based education. This is not a repeat of nursing school. This is an intense, focused program with content created to prepare you for delivery of excellent patient care in your chosen field of nursing. Didactic content, partnered with one-on-one preceptor-led training, will provide you with a meaningful learning experience that is led by the subject matter experts. You will experience the true meaning of interdisciplinary care via clinical experiences with Respiratory Therapy, Pharmacy, Lab, Physical Therapy, Wound Care, Radiology, and Rapid Response. Our program sets the new graduate nurse up for a successful and rewarding career at Mercy Medical Center Redding.

Making Your Professional Goals Happen:

This transition-to-practice program is for the new graduate registered nurse (RN). Since its inception in 2011, the goal of the program has been to move the new graduate RN from a novice new nurse to a confident, competent, well-equipped practitioner within their specialty. We accomplish this by implementing progressive independence in the clinical areas with expert preceptor role modeling and at the elbow education.

Our nurses are a dedicated group of professionals who possess a personal sense of ownership, commitment, and responsibility to provide care that facilitates health and healing. We embrace the concept that each patient and their family have a unique background with individualized needs.
