New Graduate Nursing Jobs – NurSearch

It doesn’t matter how long you have been providing care. Everyone remembers their first day as a new graduate nurse. The first needlestick, the first code, the first mistake, the list could go on forever. There is a common perception within the industry that nurses eat their young. Clearly, this mentality is toxic. The nursing industry is on the verge of the biggest nursing shortage in fifty years. Unless we welcome new graduates into our ranks with open arms, everyone will suffer. We owe it to our patients, our mentors, and to each other to fix this flawed mentality to provide the highest level of nursing care.


Treating new graduates with indifference is costly to your organization. Despite receiving extensive training, new graduate turnover is 30% the first year and 57% the second year. Still, the cost of such training is approximate $82,000. New graduates cite poor relationships with their peers as a major reason for seeking new employment. So, embracing young nurses is a crucial step to providing adequate staffing levels. 

New Graduate Residency Programs

New graduate residency programs have shown to be effective in reducing turnover. Residency programs are often longer than a standard orientation. In addition to creating a structured training environment, these cohorts foster a support system for new nurses. Excessive costs are a frequent criticism of nurse residency programs. That being said, the resources saved by reducing turnover can outweigh the cost of providing a residency program.

Career Counseling
