Nurse Graduate Residency
Anne Arundel Medical Center, a member of the Maryland Nurse Residency Collaborative, offers a 12-month nurse residency program, sponsored by UHC and AACN that is designed to provide a smooth transition as you embark on your professional nursing career. Your cohort will meet monthly for continuing education sessions that are focused on enhancing critical thinking skills and improving patient outcomes through evidenced-based practice.
We believe that it is important for you to find a clinical setting that will allow you to feel secure and supported, yet challenged. Our workplace is known for its friendly staff, outstanding patient-centered environment, cutting-edge technology, and progressive stance among the medical community. All of our Nurse Graduate residents are assigned to a mentor who will provide support and assistance throughout your first year of professional development.
- The Nurse Graduate Residency is held in September and March each year.
- 12-16 weeks of preceptored orientation.
- Candidates must apply to positions of “Nursing Graduate” via our job postings page.
- Positions are posted in April (for September) and October (for March).
- Nursing school transcripts will be requested at time of interview.
- Current American Heart Association/Healthcare Provider CPR certification also required at the time of interview.
Student Nurse Opportunities
Anne Arundel Medical Center also offers opportunities for students to join us as a Student Nurse Patient Care Technician II and provide direct patient care under the guidance of an experienced RN. You will gain real-world experience in an acute care setting — performing tasks such as assisting patients with ADLs, vital signs, dressing changes, phlebotomy, finger sticks, foley catheter insertion and more. You’ll also learn the importance of customer service and patient satisfaction in daily activities.
This program is available to students who are actively enrolled in a Registered Nursing program and have completed at least one clinical semester. Candidates must also have a current Maryland CNA license, and American Heart Association/Healthcare Provider CPR certification. Student nurses are hired in December and June. There are often opportunities for local students to continue working on a per diem or part-time basis when school resumes in the fall.
