2022 Stronger - PH408 - Ready, Set, Go! Preparing Practice-Ready Nurses - On Demand

For many years academia and hospitals have investigated collaborative approaches to better prepare nurses through clinical education and practice. Norman Regional Health System’s solution paired clinical-academic partnerships with a compensation model to help nursing students gain clinical knowledge. The Student Nurse Partner (SNP) program prepares fourth-semester nursing students by building clinical and leadership skills, resulting in confident, practice-ready nurses. The SNP program strengthened the transition-to-practice pipeline by providing increased recruitment and retention of graduate nurses. Learn how to implement this transferable and sustainable program in your facility.
