What makes a successful Staff Nurse at Akron Children’s Hospital? All our units provide robust orientations (from 9 weeks up to 8 months), and our nurse residency program provides hands-on training for nurses with less than 1 year of clinical experience. Therefore, a Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing (BSN) is the preferred minimum education for staff RNs, and no experience is required. Of course, a solid background in med/surg/telemetry (adult or peds) translates well to almost all our units. Check out the top traits we’re looking for and see if you have the right mix.
