7 graduate from Schneck nurse residency program

Staff Reports

Schneck Medical Center recently announced the names of nurse residency program graduates for July 2020.

They are Jerrica Wischmeier, Brooke Ebbing, Mariah Flinn, Yolanda Meredith, Kimberly Hobbs, Aeriel Pettit and Brittany Koors.

Schneck’s nurse residency program is a one-year program that includes monthly training sessions designed to support the new graduate nurses’ transition from advanced beginner to competent professional.

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

Schneck, in partnership with Vizient, a health care performance improvement company, began the nurse residency program in 2016 and has had 58 nurse graduates since that time.

“Finding your first job as a nurse can be challenging,” according to a news release from the Seymour hospital. “Candidates need to find a place where they feel comfortable and get the support they need to progress from a novice nurse to an experienced nurse. Schneck’s leading-edge, evidence-based nurse residency program fosters a positive experience for all newly licensed nurses as they transition into practice.”
