The UHC/AACN Post-Baccalaureate Nurse Residency Program at the University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics – recognized as an exemplary program by the Magnet® Commission – is part of a national initiative developed by leaders in the nursing profession across the country.

This prestigious 12-month program is designed to help nurses confidently move into practice following graduation from a baccalaureate program.

As a nurse resident, you’ll work through a series of learning and work experiences as you transition into your first professional position in a University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics acute care setting.

  • Commit to full-time employment with University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics for a minimum of one year
  • Adhere to all institutional guidelines as a member of the professional nursing staff
  • Participate actively in learning experiences

Outcome instruments are completed on hire, at 6 months, and at 12 months in the program. Nurse Residents have demonstrated a significant increase over time in communication, leadership, and an ability to organize and prioritize cares. They have also experienced a decrease in perceived stress over the year.
