As a graduate nurse, the number of nursing specialties you can practice might be overwhelming. If you are looking to explore different types of nursing, different departments and find your niche, our Graduate Nurse Bridge Program is the choice for you. Nurses will apply to our GN Bridge Position at Ivinson and will have the opportunity to rank your nursing interests. Our hiring team will then match you based on your interests and department capacity for orientation. You will orient to two departments and when a position becomes available within one of your departments or in a different department at Ivinson, you can apply to be placed in a permanent position. Some of the benefits of this program include:

  • Explore different types of nursing and find the best fit for you.
  • Get to know the staff and manager in departments before committing to a permanent position.
  • Determine what type of work schedule appeals to you. Many of our 247 nursing units work three 12-hour shifts while our clinics work Monday-Friday, 8 – 5.

If you know what type of nursing you are interested in, you can apply directly to any of our open positions. Hiring managers will conduct interviews and offer positions to candidates that are the best fit for their department’s needs. The number of positions in each department varies depending on openings. Graduate nurses will orient on one unit until they are working independently. Some of the benefits of this program include: 

  • Practice the type of nursing you are interested in immediately. 
  • Experience a home in a department from your first day of employment. 
  • Complete orientation and practice independently more quickly.
