A Multisite Study on a New Graduate Registered Nurse Transition to Practice Program: Return on Investment


The findings of this study show a positive return on investment and provide additional evidence to support the business case for implementing a transition to practice (TTP) program in hospitals to decrease new graduate registered nurses (NGRN) turnover. Additionally, the results suggest the immediate investment in a NGRN TTP program has a financial benefit that accrues relatively quickly due to higher nurse retention rates.
