Acute Care Rotation Program

Similar to the Critical Care Rotation Program, TGH’s Acute Care Rotation Program provides registered nurses with a yearlong look at a wide variety of careers and gain valuable firsthand experience, with an extensive orientation period and the full support of a program manager. Candidates are not required to have any previous acute care experience. 

The Tampa General Nurse Residency Program (NRP) utilizes the curriculum and structures of the national Vizient/AACN Nurse Residency Program™, the nation's top nurse residency curriculum.
