Southern New Hampshire Health Transition into Practice Nurse Residency


Southern New Hampshire Health offers new graduates nurses a Best Match Program, which provides new nurses with experience working on four different adult inpatient units: oncology, neurology/orthopedics, telemetry, and telemetry/stroke.

You will participate in the following opportunities during your residency:

  • Trained nurse preceptors who guide your unit orientation
  • Debriefing sessions with other new graduate RNs
  • Classroom discussions lead by experienced Nurse Educators that enhance clinical knowledge and critical thinking
  • Case studies that provide real-life examples of medical issued faced by patients on your unit
  • Skill review sessions that allow additional opportunities for “hands-on” practice
  • Online learning programs and computer simulations that supplement skill development
  • High and low fidelity simulations that provide a safe environment to practice and refine clinical skills, decision-making and prioritization

All while supported by a four-time Magnet® organization!
