All member hospitals use the proprietary, standardized, 1-year NRP curriculum developed by Vizient and the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) to help new nurses transition successfully into today's highly complex healthcare environment.
Maryland nursing leaders face projected long-term severe workforce shortages and new training needs for graduating nurses. The Maryland Organization of Nurse Leaders, Inc., Maryland Nurse Residency Collaborative, established in 2013 offers a standardized residency curriculum to all new hospital-based nurses. Facilitating the re-entry of nursing students into hospital settings, creating a curriculum to support graduating nurses new to the workforce, and partnering with academicians to help with stress management and resiliency are a few ways this organization strives to retain and develop new nurses.

As a nurse educator who also still practices at the bedside, a nurse residency program is a great program that supports new nurses' transition into the nursing profession. This type of program helps new nurses improve their clinical skills to become competent nurses. I wish they had this type of program when I was a new graduate nurse.
