2023 Together - P454 - Transforming a Nurse Residency Program Through Vizient - On Demand
Grady Health System, a level-1 trauma center, has used the Vizient/AACN Nurse Residency Program™ platform since 2017. Historically, Grady onboarded nurse residents in cohorts twice annually to capture spring and fall graduates. To combat the nursing shortages, strengthen the nursing pipeline and decrease dependence on travel nurses, Grady successfully implemented a strategy focused on increasing the number of nurse residency cohorts from two to six annually, resulting in a 118% increase in nurse residents. The Nursing Professional Development department utilized the Vizient/AACN Nurse Residency Program platform to facilitate this undertaking. This presentation will provide strategies for potentially strengthening the nursing workforce.
