Are you a new graduate nurse looking for your first opportunity? Are you looking for a nurse residency program that invests in YOU, your career, and your future?
We invite new graduates to apply for Fairview Park's StaRN New Graduate program!
Fairview Park Hospital is an employee-centered, physician-friendly, community-focused hospital. We are a state-of-the-art, 190-bed acute care facility providing community healthcare services including a 24-hr Emergency Room, inpatient and outpatient surgery options, and rehabilitation therapy services. Our culture is based upon our values of I-CARE: Integrity, Competence, Accountability, Respect and Excellence. In our small-town community, we are literally, "Neighbors Caring for Neighbors".
The 10-16 week program starts February, 2020 (specific dates TBD) and features didactic and clinical training. It allows new graduates to obtain acute care nursing experience through an intensive residency program, then transition to staff roles within Fairview. During the 10-16 week program you will be considered a PRN employee. After completion of the program, you will transfer to Fairview Park and your time in the StaRN Program will count towards your eligibility period for benefits when hired full time as an RN with the hospital.
Program acceptance requires a minimum two (2) year commitment to the facility. Failure to meet this may result in repayment of facility investment.
Tracks offered for February, 2020 include Med/Surg, Step Down/Progressive Care, Telemetry, ICU, Rehab, and Emergency Department.
