TriStar Skyline Medical Center February 16, 2017

Nashville, TN — TriStar Skyline Medical Center proudly welcomes its nurse residents to the inaugural cohort of the HCA Nurse Residency at TriStar Division. Selected after a rigorous application and interview process, these 15 nurses launched their professional nursing careers with orientation for the Winter 2017 Cohort on February 13 in Nashville.

“TriStar Skyline’s culture fosters an environment to learn and offer the latest tools, treatments and technology that foundationally provide the best opportunity for pursuing a career as a nurse,” said Laurie Turner, chief nursing officer. “We are excited for our new nurse residents to join our team. Nurses that have started here after graduation have shared with me that they felt supported. We are fortunate to have a superior caregiver team to help our residents learn what great patient care looks like.”

The full-time, entry-level nurse residency leverages the expertise of TriStar Skyline’s nurses, who will support the nurse residents as they transition from being a student to professional nurse. During the 12-month program, nurse residents complete a comprehensive curriculum that includes on-site immersion, mentoring and coaching, classroom and simulation learning, networking, career progression pathway planning, and a collaborative evidence-based practice project.

The Winter 2017 Cohort includes over 100 nurse residents from 11 states and 28 schools of nursing who are now working in 14 HCA-affiliated hospitals within TriStar Division.

HCA’s TriStar Division offers two nurse residency cohorts annually. Each cohort includes opportunities in 10 specialty areas at 22 facilities located in Northwest Georgia, Northeast Atlanta, Bowling Green, Kentucky, and Chattanooga and Nashville, Tennessee. Nurse residency can launch a nursing career that may grow within a single facility or expand to one of nearly 170 HCA affiliated hospitals across the country and in the United Kingdom. Nurse resident positions at TriStar Skyline are available in emergency services, behavioral health, critical care and medical-surgical care. Applications are being accepted through March 15, 2017, for the Summer 2017 Cohort, which begins July 24, 2017.
