Nurse Residency Program for New Grad Nurses
The St. Jude Nurse Residency Program supports newly graduated, bachelor’s-prepared registered nurses as they transition from student to professional nurse. The program works with early-career nurses to prepare them to lead the advancement of nursing care through innovation, expansion of evidence-based practice and the global sharing of knowledge. New grad nurses hired into the NRP are supported by a team of Nursing Professional Development Practitioners as they work through this critical transition period and adjust to the realities of the profession in a supportive and nurturing environment.
The use of a multi-state license in Tennessee began in July 2003 as a result of the Tennessee Licensure Compact that was enacted by the Tennessee General Assembly. Tennessee joined with multiple other states in this compact. Under certain circumstances, a nurse with a current license in one of those states may practice nursing in any of the other states without having to apply for a new license in that state.
