Nurse Residency Program

D-H Nurse Grace Lavoie

Dartmouth-Hitchcock's Nurse Residency Program provides a structured orientation experience that allows newly graduated RNs - and nurses with less than one year of clinical experience - to begin their nursing career with confidence. Nurse Residents participate in a variety of sessions designed to strengthen their assessment, critical thinking, communication, teamwork, and technical skills in a safe learning environment.

  • Clinical experiences with a preceptor. 
  • Simulation in our Patient Safety Training Center.
  • Competency and skills assessment and verification.
  • Orientation to the electronic health record, eD-H.
  • Patient care skills labs that provide hands-on experience with equipment. 
  • eLearning modules.
  • Lively discussions on clinical topics and situations.
  • Exposure to the many opportunities available to Dartmouth-Hitchcock nurses.
  • Information about the community Dartmouth-Hitchcock serves, and the advantages of living and working in our community.
  • Details on available professional and personal development resources.
