Founded in 1901, CHLA is the top-ranked children’s hospital in California and among the top 10 in the nation, according to the prestigious U.S. News & World Report Honor Roll of children’s hospitals for 2017-18. The hospital is home to The Saban Research Institute and is one of the few freestanding pediatric hospitals where scientific inquiry is combined with clinical care devoted exclusively to children.

Our mission is to create hope and build healthier futures. That promise applies to our people as well as the children and families we serve.

At Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, we understand the needs of new graduate nurses as they integrate into the profession. To meet those needs, we offer the Versant RN Residency in Pediatrics, which provides the specific tools and experiences needed by new graduates to become successful pediatric nurses.
CHLA is the founding hospital of the Versant RN Residency. Created in July 1999, the 22-week program provides new nursing school graduates with a comprehensive clinical and learning experience to prepare them for work in an acute care environment. It has become the model for new graduate nurse residency programs throughout the United States.
Children’s Hospital Los Angeles is recognized throughout the United States and around the world for our leadership in pediatric and adolescent medicine, as well as pediatric research. As a Magnet-designated hospital, CHLA is one of America’s premier teaching hospitals, affiliated with Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California for more than 73 years.
In 2015, the RN Residency in Pediatrics at CHLA was designated as Accredited with Distinction by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Practice Transition Accreditation Program. This program recognizes transition programs which meet the highest quality standards. Currently, only five programs across the United States have achieved this designation.
The September 2018 cohort applications will open on March 5, 2018 starting at 5:00 PM (Pacific Standard Time). Check out more details on our website.
