Nurse Residency Programs

New Graduate Nurse Residencies

At BIDMC, we welcome new graduate nurses! We invite you to join one of several residencies. You will be enrolled in a structured, evidence-based program designed by Vizient and the American Association of Colleges of Nursing to support your transition to the role of a professional registered nurse. The 12-month curriculum includes monthly seminars, hands-on clinical practice, didactic presentations, and opportunities for reflection and peer support.

A structured Nurse Mentorship Program is available to everyone! We encourage all nurses to choose a mentor following their formal orientation. Many specialties accept new graduates in group cohorts at select dates.
