Program Details

Mayo Clinic's one-year Nurse Residency Program in Phoenix/Scottsdale, Arizona, provides education and support to assist you in developing your clinical decision-making abilities and knowledge, as well as enhancing your technical skills.

This program includes a comprehensive curriculum that is presented in a variety of educational styles, which include presentations, lectures, guided hands-on skills training and high-fidelity patient simulations. Attendance is mandatory for all classroom sessions.

In addition to the structured educational program, you will be placed on an assigned unit with a preceptor for a one-on-one clinical experience. The length of time working alongside the preceptor varies with each specific unit and each individual's learning needs.

We are committed to providing a strong educational foundation for all new nurses. The Nurse Residency Program will assist with your successful transition from a new graduate nurse to a well-prepared, confident and committed professional nurse.
