Third cohort of Nurse Residency Program graduates
Congratulations to our third cohort of Nurse Residency Program graduates! They began this program in the midst of a global pandemic and met each challenge with compassion and perseverance while caring for our loved ones and our community. A special graduation program and blessing of the hands ceremony were held to commemorate this milestone in their career.
The Nurse Residency Program is part of our “grow your own” initiative which includes a partnership with UH Maui’s College of Nursing and aims to increase support for first year new graduate nurses transitioning into clinical practice. Since the program was established in 2018, Maui Health has hired nearly 200 students from the University of Hawai'i Maui College of Nursing.
We’re excited to continue this program and hope that this helps encourage people to explore a new career in healthcare.
