MEETING THE NEEDS OF NEW NURSES
At our hospital, we understand the needs of new graduate nurses as they integrate into the profession. To meet those needs, we use the Versant RN Residency in Pediatrics program, which provides the specific tools and experiences needed by new graduates to become successful pediatric nurses.
Our hospital is the founding hospital of the Versant RN Residency. Created in July 1999, the 22-week program provides new nursing school graduates with a comprehensive clinical and learning experience to prepare them for work in an acute care environment. It has become the national model for new graduate nurse residency programs throughout the United States.
RECOGNITION RECEIVED FOR THE PROGRAM
We are acknowledged throughout the United States and around the world for our leadership in pediatric and adolescent medicine. As a Magnet-designated hospital, we are one of America’s premier teaching hospitals, affiliated with Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California for more than 73 years. We also are a national leader in pediatric research.
