New Graduate Transition into Practice: Improving Quality and Safety (Chapter)

Description
There is evidence linking improved patient care to standardized transition to practice programs in the areas of safety, competence, and retention.  This chapter explores that evidence, presents a standardized model as a solution, and gives examples of transition program models, as well as an overview of NCSBN’s Transition to Practice model.
