Abstract:

The transition into the NP role is challenging and often lacks the support needed to overcome obstacles during the first year of practice which can lead to feelings of displeasure with one’s self as well as discontent in the new professional role.  Support of graduate fellowship programs may provide a reduction in the stress and decreased confidence experienced during NP role transition.  Limited NP colleague support and organizational differences among practice settings makes it difficult to develop a one size fits all fellowship program for various employers to provide to the new NP.  Research focused on graduate fellowship programs which aim at smoothing the NP role transition into practice are warranted.  The purpose of this quality improvement initiative is to assess strategies utilized in a NP fellowship for alignment with best practices in the literature.  The primary goals are to provide proposals on potential fellowship program enhancements within an academic environment as well as future research recommendations with the aim of improving NP role transition for graduates.  This will be done using the Plan-Do-Study-Act (PDSA) method for QI projects over the course of approximately one year.
