Nursing Graduate Hiring Notice

Applicants for the August 2020 New Graduate Nurse Residency Program Cohort:

We are continuing to review applications for the New Graduate Nurse Residency Program at Children’s Hospital Colorado. Currently, we are planning for an August 2020 Cohort for our hospitals at Anschutz Medical Campus, Aurora and in Colorado Springs. However, due to operational impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are evaluating our plans to hire new graduate nurses, and our plans may change. If there are any changes to our ability to hire, we will update this website accordingly.

In addition, due to COVID-19 priorities, the application review process is taking longer than initially expected. If you have a question that needs immediate attention, please email talent@childrenscolorado.org. Please keep in mind that our response time may be longer than expected.
