The nurse residency program provides a solid foundation for new graduate nurses transitioning from student to professional nurse and offers support in the development of effective, competent, and committed nurses. The 12-month program includes a centralized onboarding process and orientation, department-specific content and skill development, preceptor support, and transparent leadership support. After completion of department-based orientation, nurse residents continue with regularly scheduled workshops designed to address specific transitions through the first year of practice as novice nurses. Topics include delegation, time management, resiliency, patient engagement, diversity, cultural competency, ethical decision-making, evidence-based practice, and quality initiatives. Vanderbilt University Medical Center Nurse Residency Program is accredited with distinction as a Practice Transition Program by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation in Practice Transition Programs.
