Ozarks Healthcare Nurse Residency Program

Ozarks Healthcare'ss Nurse Residency Program begins in January and June of each year. It is a 12-week program that assists recent graduates in the transition from nursing school into their new roles. Over the last 12 weeks, each of them spent time in approximately 28 areas of the hospital. The goal is to find the perfect fit by the end of the 12 weeks depending on job openings as each of them will stay at OMC. We are proud to say that most nurse residents find their perfect jobs.

“Our goal with the nurse residency program is to assist new nurses in finding their potential and future home at OZH where they will continue to serve our community with compassionate care,” Karlee Marvin, Nurse Residency Coordinator said. “And bridge the gap between education and successful clinical practice."


To be eligible, applicants must have completed an RN program within six months and have current RN licensure, preferred or scheduled, with successful completion of the NCLEX within 90 days. View additional information on how to apply.
