Nurse Residency Program
The Nurse Residency Program (NRP) at Valley View has been assisting newly graduated RNs with their transition to practice since 2009. We are proud to say that our program achieved Accreditation with Distinction from the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) in April 2018.
Annually, this program admits 2 cohorts of 5-10 new RNs who receive an extended orientation with a designated preceptor; monthly classes that focus on the needs of a transitioning Nurse; and most importantly a year of extensive support from Education Facilitators, the Program Director and the Nurse Residency Coordinator. NRPs are proven to increase new RN satisfaction and commitment with the Nursing Profession and increase retention.
