Enterprise-wide HCA Nurse Residency

Our enterprise-wide HCA Nurse Residency is designed to hone the clinical skills and professional development of new nurses through an evidence-based 12-month training program. Starting with a structured onboarding program, graduate nurses are equipped with the clinical skills needed to perform at their best through classroom education, hands-on simulation training and preceptorship. Upon completion of the onboarding program, graduate nurses continue to the professional development portion of the HCA Nurse Residency where they further refine their skills through mentorship opportunities and monthly seminars.

Excellence in med-surg and critical care programs enable nurses to enhance their skills in specialized areas

Med-surg nurses are the largest body of nurses at HCA, and we recognize the unique educational and professional development needs of this special group of nurses. Through our enterprise-wide med-surg initiative they have access to the tools needed to enhance their skills in this specialized area. Eligible nurses are encouraged and supported in gaining a variety of national certifications throughout their career at HCA.

We are expanding our commitment to empowering nurses to enhance their skills in a specialized area through our critical care program. Similar to our med-surg program, it fosters nursing excellence, patient advocacy and a healthy work environment in adult Critical Care Departments.
