Mary Washington Healthcare will take your nursing degree to the next level with our New Graduate Residency Program.
As a new graduate nurse, there will be an extensive 12-week program. Within the orientation process, there will be experiential learning experiences including rotations through other units (3 units, 2 weeks each) to obtain a variety of patient care experiences. After rotations, orientation will begin on the unit of hire.

If you are selected for the program, you will learn everything they couldn’t put in textbooks like family dynamics, patient dynamics, and psychosocial process – how much more it takes to treat the entire patient. With three months of classroom training and unit orientation, you will be exposed to things you wouldn’t necessarily see while you are at school. Instead of looking at each system individually – nervous, hepatic, etc., the in-house teaching staff will integrate it so that it all comes together.

As medical innovations and technologies continue to advance, so does Mary Washington Healthcare. With two hospitals and free-standing facilities throughout the area, we offer all the benefits of a big city healthcare system while located in the beautiful Virginia countryside.
