New Graduate Nurse Residency Program

MyMichigan Health is committed to ensuring new graduate nurses receive additional support and resources during their first year. This is why all new graduate nurses are automatically enrolled in the Residency Program, a comprehensive 12-month curriculum designed to assist new graduate nurses in the transition from an entry-level R.N. to a competent R.N.
