Welcome to Nurse Residence!

Why: Mosaic Life Care has developed this program to support your transition to nursing practice and your professional career growth. The Nurse
Residence Program at Mosaic Life Care will support your transition to practice during the first year by building relationships with experienced nurses, providing constructive feedback and an opportunity to practice skills and scenarios in a non-threatening environment. Nurse residents will have the opportunity to collaborate with peers and share common experiences to help bring all the pieces of nursing care together.

What: The Nurse Residence Program at Mosaic Life Care is based on the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education's entry to practice standard. You will progress through the program based on the date of hire. Various learning opportunities will be presented throughout the program which are
facilitated by Clinical Education Specialists. At the conclusion of your residency, you will create a presentation for subsequent cohorts and leadership.

Program sessions include:

  • Patient and family-centered care/business of healthcare: This session will introduce the nurse resident to the nursing theorist that drives our patient care and balance compassionate care with the business of healthcare.
  • Communication and conflict management/ethical decision making: This session will assist the nurse resident to describe characteristics of effective communication and conflict management and discuss ways to apply these concepts to the work area as well as consider ethical decisions they may encounter as a nurse.
  • Quality and safety/evidence-based practice: This session will assist the resident in applying the concepts of evidence-based practice to the delivery of safe, quality patient care.
  • Informatics and technology/performance improvement: This session will explore the resident's professional responsibilities with respect to legal and ethical use of technologies and healthcare information.
  • Management of the changing patient condition/stress management: This session will explore concepts of assessment and reassessment to ensure the provision of safe, high-quality, evidence-based care and methods to manage the stress that accommodates these situations.
  • Management of patient care delivery/professional development: This session will explore concepts of time management to manage patient care for optimal patient outcomes and the importance of continuous professional development.
