Prepare For Your Nursing Future

"I did not think twice as
I learned of Baystate Medical
Center's Magnet designation,
glowing patient reviews, and
the strong curriculum
for new nurse graduates!"
—Will, BSN, RN, Graduate

If you are a graduate from an accredited nursing program (BSN or ADN) with less than a year of experience as a registered nurse, our accredited 1-year Nurse Residency Program will support you as you transition from novice to professional nurse.

We offer career opportunities throughout our integrated health care system—in all areas of care, in several locations—allowing you to focus on areas that match your interests and career goals.

Enhance Your Confidence and Competency

When you complete our program curriculum, you will have the knowledge and skills that empower you to function autonomously within your nursing specialty.

Dedicated, trained preceptors will guide your learning as you develop into a full partner on our health care teams.

We also provide exposure to leadership strategies and continued professional development opportunities.
