How do new nurses go on to become great nurses at Baystate?

September 07, 2016
Nurse Residency 2016

How do new nurses go on to become great nurses at Baystate Medical Center where they bring their skilled knowledge and compassionate caregiving to the bedside every day?

There are many reasons, first and foremost is their participation in Baystate Medical Center‘s Nurse Residency Program.

Congratulations to 70 Nurse Residency Grads

On March 21, seventy nurses from Baystate Medical Center’s Nurse Residency Program attended a “unique” graduation ceremony at the hospital’s Chestnut Conference Center. They weren’t graduating from nursing school, they’re already nurses. Instead, they were attending the 7th graduation of the BMC Nurse Residency Program. Certificates were awarded by Christine Klucznik, DNP, RN, chief nursing officer and vice president, Medicine, Professional Practice and Magnet.

Baystate’s BSN Nurse Residency Program is a one-year curriculum for newly graduated registered nurses, offering hands-on clinical experience, in-depth learning through monthly seminars, participation in evidence-based projects, and ongoing professional development. The program was developed in collaboration with Vizient, formerly known as the University HealthSystem Consortium and the American Association of Colleges of Nursing.

Baystate Supports New Nurse Graduates

New graduate nurses participating in the program gain invaluable experience with the mentoring guidance of Baystate staff nurses, and BMC supports new nurse graduates to help ensure we have the nurses we’ll need to provide exceptional care to our patients in the future.
