The Nurse Residency Task Force in the Iowa Action Coalition has developed an innovative, online nurse residency program that is designed to help recent graduates transition into their new roles as professional nurses.

The program’s competency-based curriculum is delivered using a combination of live webinars as well as interactive, online modules and can be implemented in a variety of clinical settings across the United States.

Based on best practices and the latest research, the program’s curriculum addresses competencies that are sometimes underdeveloped or lacking in new nurse graduates. Curriculum topics include transition from student to professional nurse; communication with patient care providers; responsibilities of the professional nurse, including evidence-based practice; and decision-making at the point of care.
