New Nursing Graduate on phone call

New RN Graduate Call

Learn about your opportunities with Centura Health

Join us the third Friday of each month, 1 - 2 p.m. (MST) for our new graduate conference call. No RSVP necessary, join the call using the following:

  • Conference Line: 720-437-8608
  • Conference Access Code: 5116886

Instructions: Please place your telephone on mute while dialing into this conference call to allow for all participants to be able to hear the information presented. When we begin the Q/A Session, you will be able to un-mute to ask your questions.

  • As a recent grad, what positions may I apply for? 

    New grad RNs are welcome to apply online for any full-time position requiring less than one year of experience. Often the job requisition will indicate “new grads welcome.” Careful evaluation of actual job posting details lets applicants understand the experience level and skills required to perform the job duties. For critical care areas, it is important to have completed your senior capstone in the designated specialty area to be considered for that opportunity. As an equal opportunity employer, we must consider all applicants who have applied for the position.

  • What do we look for in new graduate RN applicants?

    When you fill out an application on our website, we require that you attach a resume and a cover letter. In the resume, please include information on your senior practicum, your degree, any certifications that you hold, prior health care experience, and if you have any other work experience outside of health care.

  • What if I don’t receive a response to my application? 

    We will carefully review all resumes and ensure each applicant receives equal consideration. Should you receive a response letter indicating that we have selected another candidate, please do not be discouraged. You are always welcome to apply for more than one position as other opportunities will arise. You are also able to check the status of your online application by logging into your Centura Health online account.

  • When are the New Grad Residency Programs offered and what are the application deadlines?

    Our ASCENT Program (Centura Health’s RN Residency Program) is typically offered 2-3 times a year depending upon the location, and it is not a position that you need to apply for separately. Your hiring manager will register you for the ASCENT program upon hire and it is additional training that you will receive along with unit orientation. Visit the Centura Heath Careers website often for more information on upcoming program dates. The recruiter representing your location of choice will also offer you current information on program start dates.

  • What happens should I receive an offer of employment at Centura Health?

    If selected for a position, a Centura Health recruiter will contact you with a contingent offer based on successful completion of background check, pre-employment drug screen and physical. It generally takes about a week to complete the background process (depending on whether or not you live outside of Colorado or are a local resident). 

    Please check our website, Centura Health careers often for updates as you continue to dialog with the recruiters at the location(s) where you prefer employment. Please know we’re continually working to expand New Grad RN programs that will afford as many new nurses as possible in an environment that fosters opportunity and success for the future.
