Graduation Ceremony for UNC Nurse Residents

Thirty-eight RNs completed their first year of practice in the UNC Nurse Residency Program on Oct. 27, 2014, and had a graduation celebration.

All new graduate nurses hired at UNC Medical Center are required to participate in the RN Transition program, which follows the guidelines and curriculum developed by the University HealthSystems Consortium (UHC). The year-long program is designed to help them transition from advanced beginners into competent professionals who provide clinical leadership at the point of care. They are precepted and mentored by all levels of nursing staff and many other disciplines as they refine clinical skills, develop clinical decision-making skills, and incorporate research-based evidence into their practice.
