Who is eligible for the Transition to Pediatrics Program?
Our Transition to Pediatrics Program is available for any nurse with a bachelor’s degree in nursing who has at least one year of experience in non-pediatric nursing. All nurses must be licensed in Nebraska or a compact state.
If I am a new graduate nurse, may I participate in the Transition to Pediatrics Program?
If, upon application, the new graduate nurse possesses less than six months experience as an RN, the nurse must apply to the Nurse Residency Program.
See Nurse Residency Program for more details.
If I am an experienced nurse with a pediatric background, may I participate in the Transition to Pediatrics Program?
No. Nurses with prior pediatric experience will collaborate with the unit educator to assess current knowledge and develop an individualized unit orientation program built on prior experience.
Can I apply for a part-time staff RN position?
Yes. We prefer that part time nurses make arrangements to work full time during the four weeks of Transition Program courses.
