Nurse Residency Program

Beginning your nursing career is a significant transition. You have questions, you need advice and you want support. The idea of hitting the ground running when there’s so much relying on your decisions can be overwhelming.

Centra has partnered with Versant, a nationally recognized nursing education program, to help bridge the gap between student nurse and accomplished professional. It’s a one-year, comprehensive transition-to-practice curriculum designed to give you the tools to manage stress, hone your decision-making skills, enhance critical thinking on the job, facilitate patient safety and more. It’s a place where you can feel safe sharing your frustrations, fears, stressors and concerns. We are excited to offer two nurse residency cohorts per year to support your professional development.

What Does the Program Entail?

Expanding Your Learning: The nurse residency program provides a comprehensive assessment, education and competency performance validation system that transitions newly graduated registered nurses to safe, competent and professional practitioners. This includes guided clinical experience with a preceptor; education and curriculum; a supportive component composed on formal mentoring and debriefing/self-care sessions; and 360-degree evaluation and measurement process.
