Based on findings from a survey and focus groups of educators, nurses, and employers, this report offers educational institutions evidenced-based recommendations to prepare RNs for the primary care of the future, with a particular focus on addressing the social determinants of health and caring for patients as part of interprofessional teams.
RN Transition Programs provide clear guidelines for preparing nurses to work in settings in which they will be needed. The programs are designed to increase newly graduated RNs’ confidence and competence, thus increasing their employability. They differ from traditional new graduate bridging programs in that they are offered through a school of nursing, which partners with one or more practice settings to provide clinical experiences.
