At Providence, we are steadfast in staging the best possible experience for the patients we serve and the exceptional nurses who provide their care. We do this by focusing on four critical areas: fellowships and residencies, professional development, research and nursing excellence (accreditation).

The Clinical Academy
Providing a pathway to nurse residency and fellowship, the Clinical Academy is a nationally accredited, evidence–based program that places new RN and nurse practitioner graduates directly into specialty positions through a year-long standard program.
Providence nursing leaders from across our family of organizations recognize that to deliver world-class care, we must provide new graduate nurses with a foundation for success. Whether you are a new graduate nurse or a nurse in transition, we can empower you to become a transformational leader through an integrated, consistent structure for mentoring, nurse onboarding and professional development.
8-24 weeks of intensive, specialized clinical training.
Personalized precepting and mentorship with a focus on professional, emotional and personal support.
Classes include immersive simulations, clinical rotations and a flipped classroom experience.
