Schneck’s nurse residency program announces graduates


Finding your first job as a nurse can be a challenge.

Candidates need to find a place where they feel comfortable and get the support they need to progress from a novice nurse to a competent and experienced nurse.

Schneck Medical Center’s evidence-based nurse residency program, in partnership with Vizient, fosters a positive experience for all newly licensed nurses as they transition into practice.

The Seymour hospital recently announced this year’s graduates: Keith Cooley, Brooklyn Schrader, Tracy McKinney, Jodi Wells, Kaylee Massey, Allison Warren, Katie Woodard, Rohni Lange, Leah McPike, Mia McCall and Katelyn Roesner.

This cohesive program, which is required for all new graduate nurses, allows nurses to receive the same training and professional development no matter if they will be practicing at the hospital or at one of Schneck’s physician practices.

Schneck’s nurse residency program is one year in duration with monthly meetings and is designed to support the new graduate nurses transition from advanced beginner to competent professional.

The program does not take the place of hospital or unit orientation but instead focuses on leadership, quality outcomes and the professional role of the nurse.

“Research has shown that new nurse residents develop improved confidence, competence, communication skills and leadership capabilities,” said Ashley Stith, nurse educator/nurse residency program coordinator. “The goal of the program is to assist the new nurse in acquiring the professional practice skills necessary to become a successful partner of the health care team.”
