Two weeks ago, we hosted the first of our webinar series related to the recommendations made in the IOM's Initiative on the Future of Nursing committee's report: "The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health." The presentation, "Developing and Sustaining the Professional Nursing Organization Through New Graduate RN Transition-to-Practice", focused on the third recommendation made in the IOM's report that addresses the implementation of nurse residency programs. Charles Krozek, and his colleagues at Versant Holdings, LLC., presented a fascinating webinar detailing the experience of Versant in implementing nurse residency programs.
For all of those who were unable to attend, or for those of you that joined us and wish to view the webinar again, you may now access the recorded webinar here.
Please join us next week for our second webinar in this series that will be addressing the fourth reccomendation made by the IOM committee focused on increasing the proportion of nurses with a baccalaureate degree to 80 percent by 2020. The webinar will be led by Maja Djukic, PhD, RN, Assistant Professor at New York University's School of Nursing, and will discuss the differences in qualtiy improvement participation by Associate and Bachelor degree graduates.
