Registered Nurse (RN) - February 2020 Residency Program
Yakima Valley Memorial Hospital
 Yakima, WA

The Virginia Mason Memorial (VMM) RN Residency Program is a 10-week mentorship program designed to help the new RN make a smooth transition from student to nursing professional. Uniquely, our RN Residents can explore their license throughout the hospital. Each week Residents collaborate with the program managers to determine their schedule, which can include nearly every department/unit in the hospital. No matter which departments our RN Residents choose to experience, they enjoy dedicated preceptors and a weekly class with instruction in sepsis, labs, and much more. Residents are scheduled to 40 hours each week for 10 weeks. Residents are paid, temporary employees who we hope will apply to permanent positions when they identify their preferred department/unit. Our next RN Residency Program will start on Monday, February 24, 2020. If you have questions about Memorial#s Residency Program, please feel free to call the assigned recruiter, Kelliann Ergeson, at 509-249-5519.
