Building opportunities for our nurses
For our more than 93,000 nurses, we offer educational programs and partnerships to ensure a strong nursing pipeline and create growth opportunities. Our nurse residency and Specialty Training Apprenticeship for Registered Nurses (StaRN) programs prepare HCA Healthcare nurses for a career in healthcare, and our Centers for Clinical Advancement provide nurses with the opportunity to advance their skills by working with lifelike simulation equipment.
Our Galen College of Nursing collaboration is the largest academic practice partnership in the U.S. In addition, HCA Healthcare provides significant clinical and medical education through 320 graduate medical education (GME) programs at 66 hospitals with more than 5,300 residents and fellows (as of July 31, 2022).
