What It's Like for New Nursing Grads

The right environment to truly make a difference.  

Prospective NEW GRAD RESIDENCY PROGRAM Candidates.

John Muir Health's plans for the next New Grad RN Residency Program are presently undetermined. Currently, there are no open New Grad RN Residency positions posted, therefore we are not accepting applications at this time. However, we recommend you visit our Career Site regularly and watch for announcements. Additionally, we suggest you set up a "job agent" through our website to notify you of upcoming openings.

Thank you for your interest in John Muir Health!

Specialty Areas:

The John Muir Behavioral Health Center partners with four Bay area nursing schools to provide clinical training for their BSN, MSN programs as well as colleges and universities for social service, creative therapies, and counselor clinical pre-creatorship training. You'll have the opportunity to teach new nurses, social workers, counseling staff, and creative therapists while updating your skills and knowledge. Nurses who are selected have strong critical thinking skills, and the Nurse Managers work with staff to develop required competencies in the specialty of psychiatric nursing. New hires complete on-line courses, classroom lectures, and clinical preceptorships in their assigned unit, and can be cross-trained in other units to have flexibility and expand their skill base.

Emergency/Trauma

Experienced RNs who decide to make a career change into the Emergency Room are provided with a customized orientation and training program. New staff to the Department are paired for 4-6 weeks with an experienced RN preceptor for in-depth, one-on-one training in the ED environment. In addition, for those RNs who have no Telemetry experience, the 8-Week Cardiac Care Course provides a comprehensive introduction to cardiovascular care.

Surgery

The Concord campus has a 6-month Surgery Program, where new grads are trained and paid as a Level I RN. Our Master's Prepared Educator, Charge Nurses and Surgical Administration supervise this program. The program consists of a didactic course dealing with all aspects of surgery, and rotation through all services to learn the practical side of scrubbing and circulating, working with an experienced mentor. Nurses who have a special interest in a particular service line can continue to improve their skills and gravitate to that service. We believe in continual education, supporting outside conference attendance, training and continual exposure to in-house services.

Ongoing Education

Eligible courses of study for employees in good standing are an AA degree in Nursing, and on-site RN-to-BSN/MSN Programs with an award up to $5,000 a year for a maximum benefit of $15,000. We also offer up to $15,000 a year with a maximum benefit of $30,000 for a BSN study course.

Financial Assistance Programs Support Your Professional Growth

At John Muir Health we believe that our employees and their development are key to maintaining our reputation as the premier health care provider in the San Francisco Bay Area. We have developed innovative opportunities for our valued employees to grow as individuals and live their dream careers.

Financing Your Education - Tuition Reimbursement

We know that pursuing your educational goals can also be expensive. And sometimes, our employees can benefit from additional coursework that supports their current and future work at John Muir Health. For this reason, we offer you tuition reimbursement. After one year of service, benefited employees who work a part-time schedule or more can take advantage our generous Tuition Reimbursement Program.
