New Grad RN Residency - October 2020 - Wolfson Children's Hospital

Job Summary

Baptist Health is now accepting applications for the October 26th, 2020 New Graduate RN Residency Program. 


A “new graduate” is defined as an RN who has been licensed for less than 1 year. Over the course of this 12 month program, graduates will work closely with a team of master clinical coaches & educators through a hybrid of in-class learning and on the floor application.


Additional Program Details:

  • Up to 40 hour/week commitment
  • The first 12 weeks will involve service-line orientation, foundational residency curriculum & clinical unit orientation. After this period, residents are moved to their permanent shift (typically nights).
  • There will be an additional 4-hour core course weekly the final 9 months of the program.
  • There is a 2-year employment commitment with Baptist Health following completion of the program.
  • While we do consider your preferences in selection, the competitive nature of the program does not allow everyone to get their first-choice unit.  We encourage you to be open and flexible- you will gain valuable experience & knowledge wherever you end up!


After submitting your online application, a recruiter will review. All qualified candidates will be sent via email to complete a pre-recorded video interview and a survey. Both items are mandatory to be considered for an interview with the hiring team.
