Nursing residency training programs last one year (12 months) during which trainees have 100% protected time to master the complexities of patient care, especially the veteran population. A stipend and benefits are provided. VA RN residency programs follow the Commission on Collegiate Education’s RN residency accreditation standards.

VA OAA nursing residency programs are designed:

  1. Develop competent, confident and practice-ready RNs equipped with the knowledge and skills to meet the specific needs of our nation’s veterans in the VHA and community, and

  2. To improve the recruitment and retention of VA nurses by providing a pool of highly qualified nursing labor.

The national evaluation of the effectiveness of the VA OAA nursing residency program revealed strongly positive results, including significant improvement in trainees’ clinical skills and confidence in practice at the end of the OAA nursing residency program compared to upon entering the program.
