Out-of-Hospital Residency

A Program for Rutgers BS in Nursing Students

The Out-of-Hospital residency is a 12-month program designed to promote nursing careers in non-hospital settings for Rutgers School of Nursing graduates. There is no charge to participate.

Why Choose the OOH Program?

This program will help new nurses develop advanced skills in providing specialized care in clinical practice settings other than in-patient hospital environments. It will help you establish immediate connections with senior nurses at your new job while you continue your professional development through continuing education and academic courses at Rutgers.

The program starts with career counseling provided to graduating BS in Nursing students.
