Nurse Residency Program

Nurse Residency Program

Community Medical Center is excited to announce our Nurse Residency Program!  Nurses participating in this program will gain experience in Level II and Level III NICU care; Labor and Delivery; Obstetrics  and be able to take these skills back to your facility to optimize the care of newborns and mothers in their community. The program will be tailored to the individual’s experience and needs.

An affiliation agreement needs to be in place to go forward with a nurse resident placement for educational rotations. This can sometimes take some time. Please contact us as soon as possible to ensure an agreement is current and in place well in advance of an educational experience. This cannot be done by the individual departments and must be approved by the Nurse Residency Program Coordinator.
