Transition in Practice (TiP)

Sutter Health’s mission is to care for our patients better than any other healthcare system. But we also take care to nurture you toward your nursing practice dreams. Transition in Practice programs were designed to develop specialty nurses to meet the needs of our patients. As a Sutter Health RN, you have the opportunity to participate in programs that will prepare you for practice in the Emergency Department, Operating Room, Critical Care or Labor and Delivery.

The Sutter Health Nurse Residency Program

The nurse residency is designed to provide support to nurses with less than one year of acute care experience transitioning to practice as an RN. The program is 88-hours and develops competence, confidence, and professional practice skills using evidence-based literature review, simulation learning, case studies, and support over 12 months. Every new nurse hired as a Sutter Health employee will have the opportunity to participate. The manager/director and CNE will work together to enroll their newly hired RN into the residency program.

It’s great to work as a nurse at Sutter Health. My opinions count, and I feel valued as a team member, every day.

Leadership Development

Nursing practice is an art and science developed over years of experience. So is being a great leader. As a nurse with clinical knowledge gained at the bedside, you are supported in your transition to management of healthcare operations. We offer coursework, coaching, and hands-on experience to help you become the best you can be as a leader of people and operations.

Educators Career Support

We support career growth and development for new or seasoned educators and people responsible for managing clinical practice changes. Preceptor Foundations is the Sutter Health standard for excellence in preceptor training. Advanced classes in the practice of facilitation, simulation, and managing clinical changes, are also available. Additionally, we support the education leadership community within Sutter Health with monthly collaboration, best-practice sharing from the learning and development industry and nursing education.

Integrative Healing Nurses

In a major transformation for healthcare, caring for patients at Sutter Health now includes caring for the whole person--body, mind and soul. Research shows that an integrative approach, combining clinical care with practices, leads to better clinical outcomes, is more cost effective with better patient satisfaction. Skills such as the effective use of simple imagery, the power of words, breath work, essential oils, gentle touch and awareness of energy flow patterns can add to the patient experience. In addition, the healing process benefits when clinicians are fully present for themselves and patients.
