The Vizient/AACN Nurse Residency Program™

Truman Medical Centers (TMC) Nursing Administration is proud to offer a Nurse Residency Program (NRP), which introduces the new graduate to the nursing profession by providing clinical and leadership training and support as the nurse transitions to a full partner on the healthcare team. Truman has partnered with the Vizient/AACN Nurse Residency Program™ to provide resources to help our new nurses gain confidence and increase competence during this 12-month program.  As part of the program TMC will provide new graduates with support and development in the following ways:
