Questions and Answers about Torrance Memorial’s RN Residency

Updated 12-20-19

When does your next New Graduate RN Residency start?

We anticipate our next residency to start in the Fall of 2020. More information about an Open House and the application process will be posted a few months before then.

What will Torrance Memorial’s RN Residency do for me?

Our residency is a great way to safely transition from the role of student nurse to professional nurse. During the 24 week, full-time paid residency you receive classes, one-to-one precepted clinical time, observation time on related units, and group support meetings - all of which help you in your new career. This residency will give you confidence, competence, and good friendships, too!

What else should I know about Torrance Memorial?

Torrance Memorial is an excellent place to work with friendly, talented, and dedicated staff who support new grads. Our Lundquist Tower is beautiful and modern. We are Magnet designated and an independent, locally governed medical center. We love our new grads and see the 24 week residency as a valuable investment in our future. You will quickly feel a caring atmosphere here and realize that at Torrance Memorial, you are a part of something bigger!

Do you have any suggestions for a New Grad’s job search?

We encourage new grads to keep an open mind to various employment opportunities. Joining professional nursing organizations is a good way to network as is volunteering. Now might be a good time to pursue your BSN or MSN. We wish you the best of luck! Remember to take care of yourself with healthy stress-relieving activities!

How do I apply?

We are not accepting applications at this time for the Fall 2020 cohort but when we do, the position will be posted as “Staff RN New Grad.”
