The Nurse Residency Program at Central Maine Healthcare helps new nurses get established in their roles under the mentorship of other nurses and healthcare professionals throughout the system.
Our nine-month professional development program includes regular meetings with our healthcare team as well as a rotation program that allows nurses to experience different departments and specialties. Our goal is to integrate new nurses into our team while giving them the confidence, support and education they need to succeed in their careers.
Benefits of a Nurse Residency Program
Not only do nurses in our residency program gain exposure to specialties throughout our system, they also learn and improve upon their:
- Critical-thinking skills
- Evidence-based decision-making
- Knowledge of hospital technology and electronic medical record systems
The program also better acquaints nurses with CMH’s policies, procedures and quality-control measures, easing the transition into their new jobs.
