Abstract

Evaluating Nurse Transition programs has undergone an evolutionary process to more accurately report outcomes. Based on a previous work, this project used the Clinical Nurse Transition Program-Evaluation Tool to externally evaluate the effectiveness of nurse transition programs within the U.S. Army Nurse Corps. The results support the belief that a new graduate nurse performs better at 24 weeks within the Clinical Nurse Transition Program than at 12 weeks. In addition, new graduates perform above standards 6 months postgraduation.
