Start your career off right

Moving from the classroom to the patient room is where the real work begins, but the learning never ends. At Sharp, we’ve designed a program that provides a flexible, supportive environment to help build the confidence you need to become the best nurse you can be.

The Sharp HealthCare New Graduate Nurse Residency program has achieved accreditation with distinction from the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC). ANCC Practice Transition Accreditation validates hospital residency programs that meet rigorous, evidence-based standards for quality and excellence. Nurses in our program experience curricula that promotes the acquisition of knowledge, skills and professional behaviors necessary to deliver safe, high quality care.

From acute care to ER and mental health nursing, our New Graduate Nurse Residency Program offers a wide range of opportunities that will cultivate your skills, experience and lifelong success in nursing. Meet Matthew, a recent nursing grad. 

Our comprehensive one-year program offers challenging and inspiring experiences, including:

  • Celebrations for key milestones
  • Classroom and simulation curriculum lessons
  • Clinical and inter-professional experiences
  • Individualized orientations

  • Peer group support
