Lompoc Valley Medical Center announces the creation of a New Graduate Residency Program for registered nurses. 

To kick off the program, a free, informative luncheon and tour will be held from noon to 1:30 p.m. on June 29 at the Ocean’s Seven Café in the hospital. The 12-month residency program will be led by LVMC Nurse Educator Brianna Bonner, MSN, RN.

Interested applicants may apply for the Residency Program at the Careers tab located at lompocvmc.com/careers.

Hired candidates will start orientation/training on LVMC’s Medical-Surgical-Telemetry department for up to eight weeks for a basic nursing foundation. That includes two weeks of didactic classroom coursework.

After completing those eight weeks, the new nurses will spend time orienting in one of LVMC’s clinical departments, including critical care, surgery, emergency and labor, and delivery. During the program, each candidate will gain certifications during their orientation in Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS), Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS), National Institute Stroke Scale (NIHSS), and Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP).

New RN graduates interested in attending the kick-off event can RSVP by June 24 to Brianna Bonner at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
