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.

Find out more about the NRP or apply for an upcoming cohort.


Nursing Research

St. Jude nursing research actively contributes to improving patient care and patient care outcomes for all patients and families given care at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and its affiliates, and indirectly for children world-wide who have a catastrophic illness. We do this by creating, applying, evaluating and sharing the highest quality clinical care research.
