The Centura Health Perioperative Nurse Residency Program provides nurses with the knowledge and skills to launch a successful career in the operating room. From equipment and instrument use, to critical thinking, communication skills and beyond – this comprehensive, didactic program utilizes classroom training, precepted clinical practice, mentoring and online learning (AORN Periop101 certified classwork) to prepare RNs for a successful career in surgical services.
The Perioperative Nurse Residency Program lasts approximately 8 weeks and is followed by 4-6 months of orientation in the hospital’s perioperative area where the resident is hired. Cohort locations are rotated every Spring and Fall and sponsored by various Centura Health hospitals. Each cohort typically contains 20-25 residents and are taught by OR educators from throughout the system.
Applicants must have graduated from an accredited nursing program, hold a current RN license and be in good professional standing. New graduates and experienced RNs are welcome to apply as well as Centura Health RN associates looking to take their nursing career in a new direction.
Please submit your application online at Centura Health Careers once positions have been posted. On site interviews and other pre-hire assessments may be required.
Each submitted application is reviewed by a group of managers. The group reviews the application and credentials in order to select candidates for an on-site interview.
Scheduling is up to the manager. Typically there are no weekends required during residency.
Scheduling varies depending on management. Typical residents will work 7:00 am - 4:00 pm on classroom days and then hours for precepted clinical times are determined at the facility level.
This might be an option for future years, but at this time, we are unable to sponsor visas for residents who are not U.S. Citizens.
