New Graduate RN Program

Randolph Health requires new graduate nurses to participate in the R.I.S.E. Program. R.I.S.E.—Registered Nurses Instilled in Sound Evidence—helps new graduate nurses as they transition into independent practice in their first professional position.

The R.I.S.E. Program consists of structured classes that will provide each new nurse with approved contact hours. As participants in the R.I.S.E. Program, nurse interns will take classes on:

  • Palliative care
  • Obstructive sleep apnea and respiratory assessment
  • Pressure ulcer staging
  • Laboratory specimen collection
  • Peripheral vascular access devices
  • Service excellence
  • Cardiovascular system review
  • Medication therapy for the critical care emergency patient
  • Resource management
  • Pain assessment
  • Oxygen delivery systems

General Nursing Orientation

Whether you are a new graduate nurse or simply new to Randolph Health, all new nurses participate in general nursing orientation in order to become familiar with Randolph Health operations. During general nursing orientation, new nurses will be trained in the following:

  • Use of the electronic medical record system
  • Port-a-cath access
  • Advanced cardiac life support and pediatric advanced life support, based on unit of employment
  • Unit-specific orientation with an approved preceptor
  • Access to free online training modules
  • Team building and networking through group activities

Social Events

We understand how imperative group support systems are to success. Team building is highly valued in the nursing field and creates the best possible outcome for our patients.

To help our new nurses build friendships with one another, we typically offer special events such as:

  • Ice cream socials
  • Movie night
  • Bowling
  • Skating
  • Small group meetings with the chief nursing officer
