RN Residency Program
The BRMC RN Residency Program, in partnership with Versant, provides a comprehensive educational foundation to transition newly graduated registered nurses from students to safe, competent professional practitioners. The structure and standardization of the BRMC RN Residency includes evidence-based curriculum, guided clinical experience with a preceptor for 18 weeks, and a supportive component composed of formal mentoring and debriefing/self care sessions to positively impact both the competence and confidence of the RN Resident.
Why Choose the BRMC RN Residency?
Each hospital has their own unique culture and standards in place, and BRMC strives to exceed both state and federal patient care guidelines by ensuring that our nursing staff is exceptionally trained. Versant® research shows that after completing the 18 week Residency program the new graduate achieves the same competence and self-assurance as a nurse who has been in practice for 18 months (without completing a residency). BRMC staff and leadership are dedicated to forming a supportive network to ensure the long term success and satisfaction of both our new and experienced nursing staff. We take our mission to heart: to provide excellent care for every patient, every time.
