Truman Medical Centers is an excellent place for graduate nurses to begin
a career in the Kansas City metropolitan area. New graduate nurses
joining Truman Medical Centers (TMC) are enrolled into the Graduate Nurse
Residency Program. This transition program for graduate nurses is a
collaborative endeavor of TMC Hospitals and the University of
Missouri-Kansas City School of Nursing – an innovative one-year program
supporting new nurses as they develop the skills needed to transition into
their first professional role.
Graduate nurses hired into medical/surgical, critical care, telemetry,
operating room, women’s health, NICU, and the emergency department will be
required to participate in the Nurse Residency Program. Graduate nurses at
TMC will receive a unit-based orientation under the guidance of a unit-based
educator. This orientation is based on the clinical practice environment to
which the new graduate has been hired – the time spent and planned
experiences in orientation vary according to the hiring department.
