[Evidence-based Practice Session Symposium] Purpose: To discuss the evaluation of the Evidence-based Nurse Internship Program Methods: Tracking the new nurses as they enter the work force, move through the internship and move into work roles.  The Office of Nursing Workforce at the University of Vermont sends a questionnaire with re-licensure materials to explore job satisfaction, intention to leave and reasons for leaving.  These surveys were analyzed in spring 2008. Results: Since 2003, the Vermont Nurse Internship Program has tracked 663 nurse interns.  Significant findings include that a number of interns, 32 (5%) did not complee the program.  Seven  of these failed to pass their NCLEX exam and four were unable to0 meet  the competency requirements.  Of those that completed the internship, on 5% left their position of hire in less than one year, whereas national data shows that 35% to 60% or new nurses turnover within the first year of employment (Halfer, 2006). Conclusion:  The Vermont Nurse Internship Program successfully prepares new nurses for their roles.  The retention rate is higher than national statistics.
