Creating lifelong learners, retaining new grad nurses, promoting professional accountability, and ensuring the highest level of patient care and satisfaction are just some of the many driving forces leading hospitals to implement nursing residency programs. Take a look at Adventist Health’s journey through the first year of its Nurse Residency Program.

In a recent webinar, Lesa McArdle RN, MSN, Clinical Education Manager for Adventist Health shared her insights on Aventist Health’s clinical immersion and professional development program designed to ease the transition from new graduate to professional nurse. The structured residency connects the new nurses to the professional practice model while increasing their accountability, satisfaction, engagement and retention.

McArdle looks at:

  • Ways to engage new nurses as they move into the Professional Practice Model
  • How to use individual data to drive the learning plan and orientation timeline
  • Tactics to guide and support new nurses as they learn how to put evidence into practice

EBSCO Health brought this webinar to nurses as part of its commitment to educating nurses about evidence-based medicine and nursing best practices. As a part of that effort, EBSCO Health focuses on ensuring that staff nurses, nurse educators, recent nursing graduates, and nursing students have quick and easy access to the most current information to provide the best care possible to their patients through Nursing Reference Center™ Plus.
