(Gardena, CA – September 2016) – Memorial Hospital of Gardena (MHG), a facility of Avanti Hospitals, has launched a RN New Graduate program. New Graduates will participate in a specially designed training program which will assist them in transitioning into professional nurses.

Every week of the program, New Graduates will work alongside a designated preceptor for three, 12 hour shifts with a 4-hour didactic course covering policies and procedures necessary for their success. During this eight to twelve week training period, all RN New Graduates will attend these classes on the day shift. The classes will cover topics important to all new Nurses, such as IV Administration, Sepsis and Stroke, Arrhythmias, Diabetes Management and other patient conditions which apply to all RN New Graduates. The Program will offer classroom education, debrief sessions and observational time on other units that support clinical experience. RN’s will begin their orientation period on the day shift even if hired for a night shift position.

“We are committed to the success of our RN New Graduates and follow up with them daily to make any adjustments needed to ensure the fulfillment of their individual nursing goals,” says Susan Steinberg, System Recruiter for Avanti Hospitals. “We like to check in with them to let them know we care about them and their patients. Learning together and meeting often as a new group of grads creates bonds among them that could last throughout their careers.”

Once joining the program at Memorial Hospital of Gardena, Nurses will be learning while being paid a competitive hourly rate as a full-time Registered Nurse, accruing paid time off and having access to an excellent benefit package that includes health benefits, 401k, tuition reimbursement and more.
