Abstract

Newly graduated RNs are the workforce of the future. The complex healthcare environment makes the transition from new graduate to competent RN challenging. A structured support system is essential to smooth the transition process. Nursing residency programs are well established in the literature as a mechanism of support. This article describes the implementation of a system-level new-graduate nurse residency across multiple facilities.
