You will be networking with the nursing research team, nurse scientists, committee members, project managers, and principal investigators
Residents will have the opportunity to select a study of interest, with guidance from your mentor. You may select studies that are conducted in other medical centers. This allows awareness of how other facilities function, appreciation of diversity, and networking opportunities.
Residency hours are completed at the regional offices in Pasadena, CA. Occasionally, residency hours may be conducted at facilities that are part of your study of interest.
You will be expected to complete 16 hours of research activities each week. This is a job-sharing state with your present staff RN position. Schedules are coordinated with your manager, plus there is some flexibility in planning your own residency hours.
Multiple resources will be available to you. A compilation of research books and tools will be available to you to use in the program. The Southern California Nursing Research website includes research activities and other tools. A project manager will be your mentor throughout the residency.
