ED Nurse Residency Program
The NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Emergency Department (ED) Nurse Residency Program provides a one year comprehensive orientation for new graduate nurses to prepare them for a career in our Emergency Department - a Level 1 Trauma Center, Stroke Center, Burn Center and Psychiatric Receiving Center. Our one of a kind program includes a “mile in your shoes,” a monthly rotation of 20 specialty areas including ICU, OR, EMS, respiratory therapy…etc. In addition they will participate in the Vizient/AACN Nurse Residency Program and enjoy biweekly ED education days. The Nurse residents will graduate with experience in all areas of emergency medicine, a chosen mentor to guide them throughout their career and a staff position in the ED.

Vizient/AACN Nurse Residency Program
At NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, we support new graduate nurses from the moment they join our team. In collaboration with Vizient and the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN), new graduates on each campus participate in our Nurse Residency Program. This program is designed to support you as you begin the transition from new graduate to professional nurse.

What It’s About
Promoting professional practice through clinical and educational seminars, this residency lasts one year and begins after your new nurse orientation ends. As a nurse resident, you will attend eight seminars on applied learning topics with your cohort. You will reflect on clinical experiences in supportive groups and share your insights with your peers. Program curriculum is focused on leadership development, quality, patient safety and outcomes, evidence-based practice and the professional role of a nurse.

"I am proud to call myself a NYP nurse. As part of the Nurse Residency Program, we shared our experiences, while learning and analyzing a wide array of situations. We laughed with one another, made friends and moved forward together as we adjusted to our new nursing career." Lester, RN

What We’re Learning
This program is part of a research study helping hospitals and organizations learn more about the needs of newly licensed nurses. Participation in data collection is, therefore, a critical aspect of your residency. As a new graduate nurse, you will complete surveys throughout your first year as part of your commitment to the program.

How To Take Part
This program is provided as a part of your new graduate nurse experience at NewYork-Presbyterian. All new graduate clinical nurses with a baccalaureate degree in nursing hired with less than six months of nursing experience are included in this wonderful transitional program. You will learn more about the Nurse Residency Program from your Talent Acquisition Consultant, the Nurse Residency Program Director during Nursing Orientation and from your Patient Care Director.
