RN: Graduate Nurse Residency Program

Graduate Nurse Residency Program

A group of Graduate Nurse Residency Program participants during an educational training session.

Holyoke Medical Center (HMC) is dedicated to supporting new graduate nurses with a pathway to success as they transition from school to career. Our Graduate Nurse Residency Program will provide a series of educational components as well as comprehensive supervision and clinical oversight.


  • Increase Confidence: participants will be matched with a mentor and meet with them on a weekly basis. They will form a bond of trust and support to help guide residency participants through the start of their career with a seasoned professional.
  • Improve Clinical Judgment: monthly seminars will provide additional education to allow residency participants to continue learning in a structured environment of different clinical modalities.
  • Decrease Burnout: the graduate nurse residency program will cohort participants together and provide time for the team to discuss and work through successes and challenges together with peer support.
  • Growth Development: participants will have opportunities to job shadow and cross train within different nursing disciplines, including nursing leadership, operating procedures, and units outside of their assigned position.
  • Supportive Atmosphere: Holyoke Medical Center is committed to supporting our nursing team with the goal of reducing staff to patient ratios, while also increasing the support services available, including CNA resources.
  • Healthcare with Heart: as an independent community hospital, Holyoke Medical Center prides itself on maintaining a welcoming environment, providing high-quality, compassionate care in a family-like setting.
