Developing the Next Generation of Nurses
Scripps’ system-wide new graduate RN residency program is a one-year training and development program for recent registered nursing (RN) graduates to experience direct patient care within the scope of their practice.
Patient care training includes assessment, planning and implementation of a care plan and evaluating patient progress toward expected outcomes. At the program’s completion, the new grad RNs take primary responsibility for the patient’s care, working collaboratively with the care team under their supervision.
To be eligible to apply, new grads must have completed an accredited nursing program and RN licensure prior to the start date of the program.
