Effective onboarding is key to new nurse success; however, many programs lack evidence-based support. The current study compared knowledge, critical thinking, and nurse satisfaction between cohorts before and after implementation of personalized learning for onboarding. Results showed better knowledge, critical thinking, and nurse satisfaction in the personalized learning cohort compared to prior cohorts. Nurse educators should use evidence-based personalized learning for onboarding to fully support new nurses as they transition from the classroom to practice.
