The nursing residency program at Memorial Health University Medical Center is designed to develop the professional nurse. New graduates begin the year-long program with a validation of skills and documentation training. Each month's didactic focuses on a specific area of professional nursing development, from evidence-based practice to ethics and end-of-life issues. Upon completion of the program, the nurse is prepared to be a professional, compassionate caregiver.

The official application period for the 2018 winter residency program is now closed. If you are a May 2018 nursing school graduate, please contact Monica Stancil, nurse recruiter, at monica.stancil@hcahealthcare.com, for further information.

I came to Memorial Health as an "experienced nurse" but quickly realized I was not as "experienced" as I thought. In my first year at Memorial, I learned more than I had learned in nursing school and the previous 10 years as a nurse. Now I am going on 14 years in the emergency department. Memorial has a strong teaching environment that will continually challenge you to grow and become more proficient in all aspects of nursing.

My Memorial Health journey started on the orthopaedics and trauma unit as an R.N. My passion for nursing has only grown since joining the Memorial Health team. I am now the assistant nurse manger of orthopaedics/trauma and can see the impact I make on my team and patients each and every day.

Memorial’s nurse residency program provided a seamless transition from school to bedside nursing. A lot of the information I learned in school - from pharmacology to nursing procedures and professionalism - was reinforced during my residency. It really encourages you to learn and grow while boosting your confidence as a newly graduated nurse.

Spine Surgery and Joint Replacement

After working in medical, surgical and critical care for 16 years, I decided to join the management team on orthopaedics. It’s a hard job, but at the same time, it's extremely rewarding. The fact that Memorial Health is a teaching hospital is what first brought me here. The high level of care delivered and amazing teamwork I witness on a daily basis are what keep me here.

Keith Dawson, R.N., Nurse Educator

Emergency Department

Keith Dawson

My Memorial Health journey started as a PRN PCT/sitter while I was a student at Armstrong. As a retired United States Army command sergeant major, I had no idea what to expect from nursing. I was hired to the emergency department, did the residency, started precepting others a year later, and now serve as the department’s nurse educator. I'm doing my best to develop the next group of new residents.
