Our Nurse Residency Program

ANCCThe WellSpan Health Nurse Residency Program is the only ANCC Practice Transition Accredited Program among health systems in central Pennsylvania and northern Maryland. ANCC accreditation ensures our curriculum is validated and truly one step ahead in supporting our new graduate nurses.

Easing transition: Our program bridges the gap between what was learned in school and the reality of professional nursing.

Building confidence: Our residency program instills confidence in our nurse residents by ensuring they receive the support and mentorship to make them successful at WellSpan, and throughout their careers.

Development: WellSpan nurse residents are supported by our nursing leadership, nurse managers, clinical educators, former and current nurse residents, and professional development specialists throughout the organization. Through the residency program, graduate nurses are enculturated into WellSpan. Professional development and career growth are a cornerstone to the residency curriculum.
