Let’s face it, suicide is a very difficult topic. And believe it or not, even mental health professionals struggle with how to talk about it. This is why it’s so important to bring the discussion of suicide into the open. The more we can talk about something, the easier those discussions become.

Opened in 1951, Kent Hospital is a member of the Care New England Health System and a 359-bed acute care hospital. The hospital is located in the city of Warwick, 11 miles south of Providence and mid-way between Boston and New York. As the largest community hospital in Rhode Island and second-largest hospital in the state, Kent serves a population of more than 300,000 across central Rhode Island and sees close to 70,000+ visits per year in its redesigned Emergency Department(ED). Kent's ED volume is ranked among the top 10-percent nationally and it was the first hospital in the state to eliminate the practice of ambulance diversion.
Kent is fully accredited by The Joint Commission and holds numerous other national program and service accreditations, including an "A" Spring 2014 Hospital Safety Score; three Healthgrades, Maternity Care Excellence Awards™; and five Get With The Guidelines®–Stroke Gold Plus Quality Achievement Awards from the American Heart Association.
Kent Hospital is pleased to offer nurse residency programs designed for new graduate registered nurses and less experienced nurses. The nurse residency programs that we currently offer include a new graduate nurse residency program geared toward new nurses seeking to work on a medical-surgical unit. The two other nurse residency programs are geared toward a specialty in emergency nursing and include one designed for new graduate registered nurses and the other program directed toward those experienced nurses without emergency nursing experience. The programs run for a minimum of 12-months. Upon completion of one of the Kent Hospital Nurse Residency Programs, you will be well prepared as an integral member of the nursing team.
