New Graduate Residency and Mentorship
At Kettering Health Network, we are passionate about the success of our people. We want all our nurses—from new graduates to seasoned professionals—to feel supported throughout their careers.
Kettering Health Network offers a nurse residency for all new graduates that is designed to help with a successful transition into their professional nursing practice. New graduates learn standards of care and gain hands-on experience and training throughout their weeks of orientation. Classes, case studies, and simulations hone critical thinking and clinical judgment. Seasoned nurses and preceptors share their experiences and provide individual guidance during unit orientation.
In all patient care areas, nurse preceptors provide guidance and support for new graduate nurses and students. Our nurse preceptors love to teach, and they are invaluable to our nursing practice. Mentorships and friendships often grow out of these relationships.
