At Stanford Children’s Health, we know world-renowned care begins with world-class caring. That's why we combine advanced technologies and breakthrough discoveries with family-centered care. It's why we provide our caregivers with continuing education and state-of-the-art facilities, like the newly remodeled Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford. And it's why we need caring, committed people on our team - like you. Join us on our mission to heal humanity, one child and family at a time.

At Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford, an internationally recognized pediatric and obstetric facility in Palo Alto, California, we have partnered with Vizient to develop our RN New Graduate Residency based on the Vizient/AACN Nurse Residency Program model. This unique program goes beyond the traditional new graduate program by providing a comprehensive evidenced-based transition that prepares new graduate nurses for a highly complex and fast-paced patient care environment. This is a one-year RN New Graduate Residency, which will provide you with a supportive network of senior nurses, preceptors, and debriefing sessions to help augment your academic education with professional, clinical experience. Beyond one-on-one guided clinical experience with a preceptor, classes and simulation-based education, this unique residency offers supportive self-care/debriefing groups and nursing leadership experiences.
