Novice nursing professional development practitioners lack the experience and confidence needed to be successful in their new role. A large, multistate healthcare system implemented a facilitated, virtual nursing professional development fellowship program intended to bridge the gap by providing learning integrated with current practice, support, and community. An initial pilot of the program led to curriculum adjustments, resulting in a 6-month program that has demonstrated a positive impact on self-assessed learning gains.
