New Graduate Careers
Whether you join the team as a staff nurse in one of our many departments such as Medical/Surgical, Emergency, PeriOperative Services, Women's Health, Behavioral Health, Float, or Telemetry; or as part of our nurse Fellowship or Residency programs. Each and everything you do – from the routine to the extreme – has the power to change lives.
NEW Nurse Residency Program
All registered nurses with six months or less experience will be enrolled in this unique program designed to support a smooth transition into professional practice. This year-long program, which begins with an in-depth orientation, helps new graduate nurses attain and maintain the knowledge, skills, and attitudes needed to provide safe care to patients and families, and successfully navigate through the first year as a registered nurse.
The program, which is run by Northwell's Nurse Educators, includes both in-person and online professional development sessions, skills assessment and practice, development of a clinical project, and in-depth learning of evidence-based practice.

Nurse Residents will have an opportunity to socialize and interact with peers and with leaders while learning about topics such as patient and family experience, critical and analytic thinking, quality care, ethics of care and much more.
Nurse Fellowship Programs
Northwell Health's Nursing Fellowship programs offer a specialized orientation process to recent graduates or experienced registered nurses considering a career in a specific nursing care specialty. These specialized programs provide a strong foundation and the full complement of didactic and clinical experiences needed to develop competency in the specialty care arena.
The nurse fellowship experience at Northwell Health uses a blended learning approach to educate our nurses. The fellowship program consists of:
- Nurse leaders as mentors
- Essentials of Critical Care Orientation (ECCO), AACN’s web-based critical care curriculum for adults and pediatrics as well as specialty core curriculum
- Professional seminars
- Associate Fellows - experienced unit-specific nurses educated in the art of preceptorship of new graduate Nurse Fellows
- Master Fellows – masters and doctorally prepared educators providing education and guidance to the Nurse Fellows during the length of the Fellowship Program
- Simulation as a learning strategy. The elements of the fellowship program are educational interventions that can impact new graduate nurse retention, quality of care, and patient safety
The fellowships are a year in length in order to best optimize the nurse fellow’s learning experience; however, a two-year commitment to the unit of hire is required. BSN required.
