About Our Program
As Rochester’s first and only accredited, hospital-based nurse residency program, Highland Hospital can offer you an unparalleled transition to your professional career.
A nursing residency program is not a prolonged orientation. Rather, it provides new nurses with deeper connections and more support through formal and informal set of learning opportunities that focus on best practices. These learning opportunities will go above and beyond the hospital and unit specific orientation.
You’ll be ready to take on bigger challenges and additional responsibilities to become a leader among your peers. You’ll also develop natural mentor relationships to help you transition from student to professional nurse.
