Vizient/AACN Nurse Residency Program Coordinator Call - Mirror-Mirror on the Wall: Coordinator Reflections Tell All - Career Coaching for the Newly Licensed Nurse

January 28, 2021

The Vizient/AACN Nurse Residency Program Coordinator Calls are focused on engaging ways to present content to nurse residents. They are also an excellent way for coordinators to stay updated and connected every month. Each month, content is provided by fellow coordinators showcasing a best practice in their program or an expert on the content looking to support coordinators or help improve their sessions. The education and support provided in the calls will help improve seminars and support provided to new graduates. With the increase in engagement in support, the result should be the retention of nurses and support of NRP Coordinators.
