Phoebe launches new nurse residency program


Phoebe Putney is launching a new program to get nurses more education.

The nurse residency program will help new nurses get more training in areas like Progressive Cardiovascular Nursing and Adult Critical Care.

Right now a reception is underway at the cafeteria to welcome its first group of nurse residents.

 “It's a combination of classroom lecturing, group dialogue, discussion, preceptor ship, mentoring, journaling, and there will be at least one structured lecture a week,” says Dr. Evelyn Olenick, with Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital. 

The training will get underway in just a few weeks.
