WWGH Prepares for 2nd Versant RN Cohort


Walla Walla General Hospital is preparing to launch its 2nd cohort of Versant RN residents. Designed to prepare newly graduated nurses, this 18-week residency is a comprehensive evidence-based transition program that trains new nurses to be safe, competent and confident professionals.

The unique Versant RN Residency includes:

  • Clinical experiences with one-to-one expert preceptors (75% of program)
  • Classroom and skills lab education (25% of program)
  • Dedicated individual mentors
  • Support / self-care group meetings
  • Individualized rotation or “looping” to related units

WWGH is one of three hospitals in Washington State to offer this type of comprehensive RN residency program.
