Celebrating the Co-hort’s Success
Today Parkwest celebrated by graduating its largest cohort of nurse residents to complete the Covenant Health’s Nurse Residency Program. The group was so large in fact they had to split into two groups for instruction! The 12-month structured program used classroom learning seminars, case studies, small group discussion, precepted clinical practice, and evidence-based practice projects to train the newly-graduated nurses.
At today’s graduation the group was welcomed and congratulated by chief nursing officer Lynn Cagle, chief administrative officer Neil Heatherly, as well as nurse residency program coordinator Sara Borges, RN. They shared information they learned during their residency, and enjoyed lunch together.
Thanks to all of the Parkwest leaders who worked closely with the nurse residents in their departments, and to nurse educator Pam Sparks and her team for their dedicated support to the program.
