New Graduate Residency Program
At St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center, teamwork begins the moment that you walk through our doors. We strive to ensure that all of our employees––especially new college graduates––feel welcomed, valued and inspired by the work they do and the people with whom they work. That’s one reason why St. Joe’s has a long history of attracting, hiring and developing top nursing school graduates. We recruit high potential applicants, then work closely with each new hire to help successfully identify and achieve their immediate and long range career goals. If you’re interested in joining our team and you qualify for our New Graduate Residency Program, we’d like to do the same for you. Our program is designed to help and support the new graduate in the important transition from student nurse to professional nurse. Using a structured program of didactic instruction, designated preceptors, and assignment to a home-based unit, our team will help you upgrade your skills and increase your confidence.
One of America’s top hospitals
There are many reasons to begin your career at St. Joe’s. As part of our New Graduate Residency Program, you’ll work side-by-side with an experienced RN who will coach, mentor and support you as you care for patients and interact with other members of our team. We also have a strong, solid tradition of helping prepare RNs to work in a variety of career paths with experts in several specialty areas. In fact, St. Joe’s founded Arizona’s first school of nursing in 1910 and continued graduating nurses until 1970, when colleges rather than hospital based schools became the main training centers for nurses.
A learning & caring environment
We still place a high premium on education and real-world learning. From our Nurse Extern Program for students and our New Graduate Residency Program for those having received their degree within the past year to our world-renowned healthcare education and research programs, St. Joe’s offers experience and exposure to the latest and best in medical and clinical practices, equipment and care.
