• New Graduate & Student Nursing Programs

    Offering a broad scope of orientation training programs, including three to six months of support and guidance from your personal preceptor to facilitate a smooth transition to practicing nurse, San Antonio Community Hospital (SACH) has many specialties for the new graduate RN. Through instruction and clinical experience, the new graduate is exposed to concepts and related experiences pertaining to nursing care and performance standards. Our programs include classroom instruction, skills laboratories, and clinical experience with one-on-one precepting. New graduates can find an area of interest and develop a career path in areas such as Medical/Surgical, Telemetry, ICU, ED, Peri-anesthesia, Maternal/Child, NICU, and the OR. New graduate open houses are held twice a year, which provide students with information on upcoming new graduate programs, tours of the nursing departments, and the opportunity to experience our unique welcoming atmosphere.

    San Antonio Community Hospital (SACH) is a clinical rotation site for several local nursing schools. We offer a student nurse extern program to allow nursing students from Chaffey College; Mt. San Antonio College; Riverside Community College; Victor Valley College; Azusa Pacific University (SCAN Program); Cal State University, San Bernardino; and Western University to receive on-the-job training at the hospital under the supervision of an experienced RN.

    Upon completion of their studies, many externs move on to the New Graduate RN programs offered at SACH. To explore this opportunity, please contact the nursing program director at your college.
