Designed by nurses for nurses, the CHRISTUS Santa Rosa Versant RN Residency offers an 18-week program that organizes and oversees all aspects of your learning. The ultimate goal: better, safer, and more consistent patient care.

In this nationally recognized, comprehensive, and evidence-based program, you'll be supported professionally and emotionally by our nurses who act as mentors, preceptors and debriefers, guiding and evaluating your growth at every step. Augmenting your clinical learning will be interactive classes and skills labs taught by subject matter experts to strengthen your educational foundation.

We welcome all applicants who are planning to complete the RN examination/licensure process prior to the beginning of our next cohort. We are excited about our journey to nursing excellence and providing the best care and achieving the best possible outcomes for our patients. This is accomplished with a nursing staff having the best preparation possible in evidence-based practices and research-supported knowledge.

Real-time evaluation to keep you on track.
A major program component is Versant Voyager , a fully-hosted Web-based suite of development applications offering 24/7 access to curriculum, clinical performance tracking, evaluation materials and real-time reporting.
