Now is your time.
Ready to launch your nursing career at the only hospital in the DC metro area to achieve Magnet® designation four times? You’re in luck! MedStar Georgetown University Hospital is currently accepting applications for the Vizient/American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) Nurse Residency Program™.
We’re leading the way in nursing excellence—and you can join us.
Our year-long New Graduate Nurse Residency program provides the mentoring and support you need to transition from student to professional nurse. You’ll attend monthly seminars and learning activities, formulate an individual professional development plan, and complete an evidence-based practice project related to a unit specialty of your choice.
Once your three to six month unit-based orientation is complete, you’ll begin a minimum two-year, full-time commitment with your unit at MedStar Georgetown. By working at one of the country’s top hospitals, you’ll establish a strong professional foundation.
Learn from the best.
MedStar Georgetown was the first hospital in the nation’s capital to be granted Magnet® status by the American Nurses Credentialing Center—an honor given to fewer than eight percent of hospitals across the country.
What does our Magnet® status mean for you? Our nurses rate their job satisfaction and sense of professional empowerment more highly than those at non-Magnet® hospitals. This is an opportunity to join a workplace recognized for our positive work environment, clinical excellence, and many professional development opportunities.
The New Graduate Nurse Residency, beginning February 2021, is intended for Fall/Winter 2020 graduates of accredited BSN programs. Spring/Summer 2020 BSN graduates will also be considered. This selective program is open only to candidates with a GPA of 3.2 or higher, so please list your GPA in your resume or cover letter.
Interested? Submit your online application.
Once your application is in, you will be prompted to complete an online Nursing Career Battery. You have 72 hours to complete the test. If you do not finish the test within this window, your application will not be considered—so don’t delay!
Candidates who complete the Nursing Career Battery and meet minimum requirements may be contacted for an interview. At the interview, you will be asked to submit:
- Official transcript (cumulative GPA: >3.2)
- Two clinical faculty reference letters on official university letterhead
- Employer reference (if you have worked as a Nurse Technician/Extern/CNA/Care Partner)
