Our StaRN program educates thousands of newly-licensed nurses every year using specialized training that bridges the skills gap between new and experienced nurses. After graduating from StaRN, these nursing “rookies” put their hands-on training to the test at HCA facilities around the country.
“StaRN to me was really the perfect stepping stone from graduating school to stepping into the real world of nursing,” says Matthew Rickmon, HCA’s 2016 Rookie Nurse of the Year winner for the Southwest Virginia market. “It truly was that intermediate level that helped prepare me for what was to come.”
