Once you submit your resume or application you will go through one or two phone interviews. If chosen, you will then receive an invitation to come to our Saint Thomas Showcase to meet face to face with our leaders and have the opportunity to interact with associates. After the event day, our nursing leadership will extend offers. We believe that choosing new associates is a mutual process, as it is the beginning of a career/professional relationship. It is important that you spend enough time with us to choose us, Saint Thomas Health, and your specific experience within Saint Thomas Health. In addition, our nursing leadership must choose you as the right fit for our organization’s needs as well as our mission and values. We believe that this mutual partnership sets both parties up for success on our professional journey together as a team.
Nurse Externs do not need to apply unless directed to do so by their manager or director. Please speak to your manager or director about the Nurse Residency Program and your next steps.
The initial orientation period is 14 weeks then you move to your home department. Participants in specialty areas may have an extended orientation period which is based on individual experience and need. The total length of the program is 2 years to allow for workshops, educational events, and ongoing support as you begin your career in nursing.
Through a joint effort between the participant, Nurse Residency Program, Nursing Leadership, and Human Resources, we are committed to beginning a structured career planning process during your first 14 weeks of employment.
