The benefits of nurse residency programs are well documented from the perspective of the nurse resident. To justify the resource investments of time and money, effectiveness and value for all stakeholders must be measured. The purpose of this study was to examine nurse leaders’ perceptions of effectiveness and return on investment of a nurse residency program. The investigators found that hospitals may experience a return on investment and nurses’ enculturation occurred more quickly.
