Thank you for your interest in our Adult RN Residency Program. We seek qualified individuals who have demonstrated a commitment to the mission of Loma Linda University Health. We offer three cohorts per year: winter, spring and fall. Applications are only accepted during the Open Application periods.

Application Tips

On the application, you will be able to indicate which unit you are applying for. View the departments participating in the Residency program. Please note that indicating a unit in your application does not guarantee you an interview and/or a position in that specific unit/department. If you receive a phone call from another unit, that means all the positions from your desired unit/department has been filled and are no longer available.
