From January to October 2020, 66 new-to-practice nurses graduate from the New York-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital Nurse Residency Program.
This is designed to support new hires who are graduate nurses as they begin their transition from new graduate to professional registered nurses. They are provided through a one-year Nurse Residency Program for all new graduates of baccalaureate programs hired into full-time nursing positions. Residents participate in monthly sessions designed to smooth the transition from nursing student to professional clinical nurse – with an emphasis on developing clinical and leadership skills. They are supported in the implementation of their own evidence-based practice project.
All new graduate nurses are given the opportunity to participate as part of one of their shifts in the Research & EBP Council. In this council, they are able to consult and receive education from our team of clinical nurse researchers, nurse scientist, IRB coordinator and library resource team. This serves as a resource as they develop their EBP projects and promote a culture of inquiry.
