Nine graduate from Schneck’s nurse residency program


Schneck Medical Center has announced its most recent graduates of the nurse residency program.

Graduating during a ceremony in July were Megan Bailey, Branson Ping, Shelby Wasson, Erin Rudolph, Elizabeth Watson, Kayla Hardwick, Morgan Burkholder, Jaimie Baldwin and Natalie Ault-Wheeler.

The Seymour hospital’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, according to a news release from Schneck.

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.

"Finding your first job as a nurse can be a challenge," Schneck said in a news release. "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’s leading-edge, evidence-based nurse residency program in partnership with Vizient fosters a positive experience for all newly licensed nurses as the transition into practice."
