Main Function

Provides high quality nursing care for assigned patients in a scientific and humanistic focus. The Newly Licensed Registered Nurse (NLRN) utilizes a holistic systems approach to protect and promote client wellness and safety in the physiological, psychological, social cultural, developmental and spiritual domains. Nursing interventions are interdisciplinary, age specific and are directed toward optimal wellness.

The NLRN is a nurse who is in their first year of nursing practice.  This role ends on the one-year anniversary of their hire date.  At this time, the NLRN transitions to the role of Staff Registered Nurse.  

NLRNs are not allowed to cover the unit for lunches or breaks or be a shift/charge nurse until they have completed the orientation period.


The NLRN must be a graduate of a Diploma, Associate Degree or Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program and have passed the state board examination by the New York State Board of Nursing before beginning employment.  The NLRN must successfully complete a medication and IV challenge examination, as outlined by the hospital within the orientation period, as well as maintain CPR certification.


The NLRN enters practice at a Guthrie Hospital through the Newly Licensed Registered Nurse Residency Program.  Clinical specialty tracks may be offered at individual hospitals.  Registered nurses with less than one year’s experience must be hired through this program and may not be hired directly into an open position on any specific unit.
