Abstract

Nurse residency programs (NRPs) are an effective mechanism for transitioning newly licensed registered nurses (NLRNs) to practice. No studies have investigated how experienced nurses view NLRN performance after NRPs. The purpose of this quality initiative was to identify experienced nurses’ satisfaction with NLRN proficiency before and after implementation of an NRP using the Nursing Practice Readiness Tool. Findings indicate that experienced nurses are more satisfied with the performance of NLRNs after the new nurse participated in an NRP.
