New Graduate Nurses

Enter into clinical practice through our new graduate nurse program.


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.

Our Graduate Nurse Program 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 new graduate to transition into clinical practice.

  • Develop understanding of the Mountain States Standards of Nursing Excellence and Shared Leadership Model
  • Develop a peer support group through networking opportunities provided

Because we care about this exciting, yet fearful time in the new nurse's life, all new nurses are guided into practice by participating in the Professional Development Sessions.

Nurses will earn an excellent salary while gaining valuable standards of patient care knowledge and skills. New graduate nurses will work under the direction of an experienced clinical leader and preceptor with expertise in a variety of areas.
