Candidates must commit to working full time during the first year of the Nurse Residency program.

Interview Process

Children’s will begin accepting applications in September for the spring hire; in January for the summer hire; and in April-May for the fall hire.

After applications have been screened and approved, potential candidates will be invited to interview for the nurse resident position.

Interviews will last up to 45 minutes and are conducted as a group interview with members of the Nurse Residency Program steering team. All candidates will be asked to give a five-minute presentation on a recent independent school project and related outcome. The presentation should focus on individual work, not a group project. Visuals can include a PowerPoint presentation, a poster board or other media appropriate to share the presentation.

Candidates who aren’t selected for an interview will be notified via email.
