Where You Work Matters

Including the Silver and Bronze Level Beacon Awards, Leapfrog Hospital award for three years in a row, Summit Award, Distinguished Hospital for Clinical Excellence from Health Grades, \"A\" grade by Leapfrog and Hospital Safety score \"A\" by the Leapfrog Group.

Choosing a RN Fellow (New-to-Specialty) Program Matters:
Please visit our Swedish Medical Center Foundation - Destination Swedish story \"The RN Residency Program\" for a 9 minute video that provides a great overview as well as first-hand testimonials from recent graduates of our program.
* Cohort hiring provides new RNs the opportunity to experience the program in a setting that provides a consistent and structured experience. * Integrated classroom and clinical experiences under the guidance and support of Preceptors, Clinical Educators and Professional Development Specialists. Clinical experience is under the direct one on one supervision of a Preceptor. * Swedish nurses chose a system-wide professional practice model through a collaborative vote as part of SMC's Clinical Excellence and Magnet Journey. This journey initiated a new culture of excellence and has enhanced nursing professional practice by fostering nursing autonomy and empowerment. * Simulated Clinical Experience with high fidelity mannequins, which offers the opportunity to practice in a safe and educationally structured environment. * Residents will experience the real-time consequences of their nursing actions and decisions. A thorough debriefing will enhance the learning experience. * At Swedish, we highly value our RN staff and strive to offer numerous professional development opportunities both at the individual level as well as opportunities to participate in shared leadership, our Nursing Quality leadership group, among others.
* RN Fellows are hired into \"orientation\" positions/units. Near the end of the orientation phase, RN Fellows are assigned to work on a specific unit and shift. Most RN residents stay on the unit they are oriented to, but if there is no open position on that unit the RN Fellow will be transferred to a similar unit where a position is open. Most are assigned to 12 hour night shifts. * RN Fellows are hired in three cohort groups each year * Applications are accepted prior to licensure, but an active RN license is required prior to the start date. * Applications are screened by the Human Resources Department. * Applicants that successfully meet the requirements of the position will be contacted for a phone or video interview by the Recruiter. * Additional in-person interviews will be conducted with the hiring manager and peer interview team for those applicants who are successful in the HR screening process.
