This project was conducted to examine learning needs, satisfaction, and turnover intention before and after completion of the Nurse Residency Program for new graduate nurses hired at the University of California (UC) San Diego Medical Center. Research has shown the necessity and importance of the implementation of a nurse residency program, not only for new graduate nurses, but for the healthcare institution as well.
A convenience sample of new graduate nurses participating in the Cohort Eight Nurse Residency Program were surveyed before the start and following a 6 month program. The data suggests that after participating in the 6 month long Nurse Residency Program, new graduate nurses were apt to be more knowledgeable on skill acquisition, more satisfied in UC San Diego Medical Center with fewer uncertainties in their professional practice, and their turnover intention had decreased from the presurvey results.
