Abstract:
Purpose: To create a new Nurse Residency Unit for the purpose of improving the recruitment and retention of recently graduated, newly licensed nurses into a challenging acute care environment that was experiencing a 26% new graduate turnover rate, as well as enhance the retention of senior medical surgical nurses. Method: A structure, process, and outcome approach was taken utilizing Benners Novice to Expert framework. An 800 bed acute care facility temporarily closed a 24-bed medical unit and recruited 25 veteran RN staff members -- all of whom shared a vision to teach. Three months later, the unit reopened as The New Nurse Residency Unit. The new unit, as well as a New Nurse Graduate Task Force, provides an unprecedented structure for graduate nurses, as well as outcome tracking. Since the conception and opening 1 year ago, the unit has successfully introduced 53 graduate nurses into the acute-care environment. The Nurse Graduate Task Force coordinates graduate nurses recruitment while reducing "lag time" defined as the time between a staff nurse leaving the organization and a new nurse taking over. Processes for candidate and preceptor selection, matching, and evaluation will be discussed. Processes for new graduate evaluation, orientation design and progress monitoring will also be discussed. Findings/Conclusion Retention has increased in both the new graduate and experienced medical-surgical nurse populations. There is a wait list for the new graduate residency unit. In addition, seasoned staff a wait positions on the Nurse Residency Unit. Vacancy rate is zero.
