Title:
Regional Collaborative Nurse Residency Program
Abstract:
Regional Collaborative Nurse Residency Program
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2001
Conference Date:November 10 - 14, 2001
Author:Burton, Mattie
P.I. Institution Name:Morehead State University
Historically, new graduates have become disillusioned with the practice of real nursing, often dropping out of the profession before getting started. Education and practice have been quick to point accusing fingers at each other. This project, The Regional Collaborative Nurse Residency Program, is a collaborative effort between education and practice. Program objectives address increasing clinical competency, improving job satisfaction, and ultimately promoting retention of new graduates in a particular health care setting. In the summer of 2000, graduates recruited from multiple area associate and baccalaureate degreed nursing programs were hired by the health care facility into an eight-week mentored residency program. In addition, they were admitted to a local university and enrolled in an eight-week course for six semester credit hours. New graduates were given a unique opportunity to “practice practicing nursing” under the guidance of experienced staff mentors and skilled faculty simultaneously. A year later, as the project team prepares to implement a second session, they will be assisted by alumni/employees, 36 of 39, which were retained from the first class. This poster presentation will detail successes and pitfalls related to the structure, process, and outcomes of the program.
