We offer nursing students and new graduate nurses enriching opportunities to develop professional skills and experience through our various residency programs and fellowships
Nurse Residency Program
This year-long program helps new graduate nurses in their first professional role ease the transition to practice. With a focus on nursing leadership nurse-driven outcomes and professional development, the curriculum is designed to enhance critical thinking skills and to support a nurse's ability to use outcome data to promote patient safety.
Nurse Residency Program Application Process
There is one posting for all Main Line Health entities. Please check back regularly for specific dates and details surrounding the next application opening. All applicants must be a graduate of a BSN program within the last year or an upcoming graduate of a BSN program within the next six months. Due to the high volume of applications, please refrain from contacting Human Resources about the status of your application, and while we do try to have each candidate interview where they have an interest, we cannot guarantee it as every interview is based on the applicant pool and position availability.
For those nursing students who have already completed at least one clinical rotation, a nurse externship allows the opportunity to gain patient care experience. To accommodate your busy life, we offer part-time rotating schedules for all shifts in most clinical specialties. These provide an exceptional opportunity to prepare for the clinical setting after graduation.
We have a Perioperative Fellowship Program if you're a registered nurse interested in becoming an OR nurse. The program is offered separately for new graduate nurses and experienced acute care nurses interested in making the transition to the operating room.
Administrative Fellowship/Summer Enrichment Program
This program provides recent graduates with the opportunity to join our administrative team and gain practical experience in a suburban, community-based health system.
