Nurse Intern IV
Upon graduation the graduate nurse may be hired as a nurse intern IV until he or she has successfully passed NCLEX. If the graduate nurse does not pass NCLEX-RN on the first attempt, he or she will remain a nurse intern. If the second attempt is unsuccessful, he or she will be placed in a position appropriate to qualifications.
The best way to enter into clinical practice is through our residency program.
The Nurse Residency Program at MSHA is committed to providing a comprehensive curriculum and guidance for the onboarding period. This curriculum advocates advancement across the education continuum, encompassing the orientee, preceptor, mentor and existing team members assisting the RN to transition into clinical practice.
The participant shall:
- Complete Mountain States Health Alliance orientation
- Complete facility and unit orientation
- Complete computer/MAK/Clinical Documentation orientation
- Achieve competencies guided by Benner's Theoretical Framework with specifically outlined curriculum
- Develop understanding of the MSHA Standards of Nursing Excellence and Shared Leadership Model
- Develop a peer support group through networking opportunities provided
- Develop a career plan that includes BEST and certification
The Nurse Residency program is a 15-month program beginning in January and June of each year.
Because we care about this exciting, yet fearful time in the new MSHA nurse's life, all new RNs are guided into practice by participating in the Nurse Residency program.
Nurses will earn an excellent salary while gaining valuable MSHA standards of patient care knowledge and skills. Nurse residents will work under the direction of an experienced clinical leader and preceptor with a variety of expertise.
