Hendersonville, TN — TriStar Hendersonville Medical Center proudly welcomes its nurse residents to the inaugural cohort of the HCA Nurse Residency at TriStar Division. Selected after a rigorous application and interview process, these six nurses launched their professional nursing careers with orientation for the Winter 2017 Cohort on February 13 in Nashville.
“We are pleased to welcome our new nurse residents to the TriStar Hendersonville team to join us in our commitment to the care and improvement of human life,” said Lisa Gann, chief nursing officer. “This is a solid foundation that helps our nursing graduates transition from novice to expert nurse, and also sharing our caring culture and how nursing makes such an impact on the communities we serve.”
The full-time, entry-level nurse residency leverages the expertise of TriStar Hendersonville’s nurses, who will support the nurse residents as they transition from being a student to professional nurse. During the 12-month program, nurse residents complete a comprehensive curriculum that includes on-site immersion, mentoring and coaching, classroom and simulation learning, networking, career progression pathway planning, and a collaborative evidence-based practice project.
The Winter 2017 Cohort includes over 100 nurse residents from 11 states and 28 schools of nursing who are now working in 14 HCA-affiliated hospitals within TriStar Division.
HCA’s TriStar Division offers two nurse residency cohorts annually. Each cohort includes opportunities in 10 specialty areas at 22 facilities located in Northwest Georgia, Northeast Atlanta, Bowling Green, Kentucky, and Chattanooga and Nashville, Tennessee. Nurse residency can launch a nursing career that may grow within a single facility or expand to one of nearly 170 HCA affiliated hospitals across the country and in the United Kingdom. Nurse resident positions at TriStar Hendersonville are available in emergency services, women’s care, critical care and medical-surgical care. Applications are being accepted through March 15, 2017, for the Summer 2017 Cohort, which begins July 24, 2017.
