SSM Health’s New Graduate Nurse Residency Program helps nurse
graduates grow into confident, seasoned professionals through a
12-month educational pathway. The program involves a rigorous
clinical and didactic training period that prepares the nursing
graduate for real-life scenarios. New graduate nurses across the
SSM Health system have the opportunity to connect and learn from
one another as they undergo training to enhance their confidence,
knowledge and practical skill. The comprehensive curriculum –
designed to enrich and compliment the nurses’ education – addresses
SSM Health disease-process protocols and incorporates techniques
and tips for prioritization, critical thinking and decision-making
skills. The training also involves hands-on practice so that the
new nurse graduate becomes familiar with the technology and
equipment used at SSM Health.
