A new website developed in Charlottesville is helping nursing students find the right residency. RNDeer.com collects residency applications in one place.

The site currently has more than 400 applications for hospitals across the country.

The site has caught on at the University of Virginia, where 97 percent of nursing students polled said they wished they could have used this technology earlier in the application process.

"We can make their lives a lot easier by focusing on a common application, similar to where you apply to schools like UVA, or the med school residency program.  We'd hopefully take the information of nurses once, try to match them up with effective programs across the country and make a more effective match for both the hospitals and the nurses themselves," said David Paxton, website creator.

Thursday night, the creators of the website are presenting their project to angel investors at the McIntire School of Commerce in hopes of getting some extra funding for their project.
