Abstract

Professional development nurses assume a principal role in establishing a state of readiness for accreditation of an organization's nurse residency program. This quality improvement project engaged a professional development department in self-study of their nurse residency program to determine readiness for accreditation by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education. The outcomes demonstrate a favorable state of organizational readiness, with minor program gaps in 19/45 accreditation criteria, requiring corrective action to optimize readiness for success.
