STAR Nurse Residency Program

The St. Luke’s STAR (Supporting Transitions and Relationships) Nurse Residency Program supports nurses in the acquisition and assimilation of knowledge, skills, and the shared vision of St. Luke’s to deliver exceptional patient and family-centered care. Rooted in the spirit of inquiry, the residency program promotes life-long learning, inter-professional collaboration, and innovation through the development of confident, competent, and compassionate nurse professionals.

The St. Luke’s STAR Nurse Residency Program is intended to empower nurses and foster retention in the profession of nursing through engagement. We support nurses as they:

  • Transition to competent, professional nurses who provide safe, quality care
  • Develop effective decision-making skills related to clinical judgment and performance
  • Develop clinical leadership skills at the point of patient care
  • Formulate an individual career plan that expresses their own philosophy of nursing and promotes a life-long commitment to the profession of nursing
  • Engage with a community of peers, colleagues, and leaders to foster a supportive and healthy work environment
  • Establish an individual nursing practice that is rooted in St. Luke’s values and relationship-based care
  • Participate in an interactive, self-driven learning environment that strengthens each nurses’ individual practice and inter-professional relationships
This practical 12-month program provides nurses with:

  • The clarity and competence essential for building individual strength, supported by both personal and professional goals
  • A collaborative team entrusted with leading our vision, mission, and values within the organization and the teams we serve 
  • A targeted focus where placing the patient at the center of all we do builds the culture of recognized excellence
