Virginia Mason Memorial Registered Nurse (RN) - Residency in Yakima, Washington

The Yakima Valley Memorial (YVM) RN Residency Program is a 10-week mentorship program designed to help the new RN make a smooth transition from student to nursing professional. Uniquely, our RN Residents can explore their license throughout the hospital. Each week Residents collaborate with the program managers to determine their schedule, which can include nearly every department/unit in the hospital. No matter which departments our RN Residents choose to experience, they enjoy dedicated preceptors and a weekly class with instruction in sepsis, labs, and much more. Residents are scheduled to 40 hours each week for 10 weeks. Residents are paid, temporary employees who we hope will apply to permanent positions when they identify their preferred department/unit.
