58 Nurses Graduate from Residency Program


Floyd's Nurse Residency program celebrated the graduation of 58 students during the month of July.

The program helps create a seamless transition from the classroom to clinical practice. All residents participated in instructional classes covering a range of topics:

  • Work/life balance
  • Critical thinking skills
  • Conflict resolution
  • Effective Communication Strategies

The students were also asked to conduct an evidence-based nursing project focusing on best practices in a clinical setting.

“Our Nurse Residency program helps create better nurses who excel at bedside care," said Dr. Sheila Bennett, Executive Vice President and Chief of Patient Services. “I am proud of all these graduates."

Forty-three of the nurses who had less than six months experience and accepted a registered nurse position at Floyd completed a year-long program.

Fifteen of the nurse residents graduated from Floyd's new 8-week program that includes ancillary and clinical immersions throughout the Floyd facility.
