Registered nurses with less than six months experience will find more than a job at Floyd. Our Nurse Residency Program lasts one year and offers education and hands-on work experience that help participants acquire clinical and leadership skills.
Each nurse resident will take part in monthly education sessions that may include classroom, simulation or other types of learning. A mentor will offer guidance during the journey.
