With the most advanced equipment and treatments available today, our nurses are leading the industry and it shows.
Morristown Medical Center has been designated a Magnet Hospital four times in a row and recognized by the American Academy of Nursing as a top hospital for recruiting and retaining well-qualified nurses. That recognition is the highest honor a hospital can attain for nursing. Exceptional nurses earned us these accolades and we’re proud to have given some of them their start. Our nurse training programs bring us the best nurses right out of school and our professional development programs keep them here and moving forward.
“[Atlantic Health Systems] offers us many opportunities to strengthen our career path.”

Hire Learning Residency Program
Provides one-year on-the-job training for eligible candidates who have recently graduated from nursing school with a curriculum that focuses on the continuum of care. Those accepted take part in a customized orientation, followed by work experience with our registered nurses and nurse educators, a team committed to creating a solid foundation for you as a new RN. So you learn while you earn. In addition, through our Full Circle Observational Learning Experience, residents can shadow nurses in the units of their specialty, gaining an in-depth understanding of how to provide comprehensive care.
Nursing Externship Program
The Atlantic Health System Nursing Externship Program offers nursing school students in their final year an opportunity to work side-by-side with a team of nurse preceptors at Morristown Medical Center and Overlook Medical Center. Participants are educated in a clinical specialty, learn critical thinking skills and build confidence for future nursing careers.
Offered through Morristown Medical Center and Overlook Medical Center, these Professional Development programs will pay for the last one to two years of tuition when you commit to working for us upon graduation. Beginning with your new hire orientation and continuing throughout your first year of employment with Atlantic Health System, your mentors are dedicated to developing your professional skills and enhancing your career opportunities through on-the-job training.
