Nurse Residency Program
Transition to Practice
What is a Nurse Residency Program?
- Nurse residency programs (NRP) assist and support new-to-practice nurses transitioning from the role of student to professional nurse.
- NRPs increase new nurse's confidence, competence, clinical decision-making skills, and retention.
- NRPs are a year-long program that consists of hands on learning experiences with support and mentorship from Nursing Professional Development Specialists.
Maryland Nurse Residency Collaborative
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.
The Maryland Nurse Residency Collaborative launched a brand new podcast the Spring of 2023, called MNRC Connect. Their first episodes explore the origins of the MNRC with Dr. Joan Warren, the first Executive Director of this innovative organization! Listen to their episodes on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.
Through this show, the MRNC will provide information that is helpful for recruiting and retaining nurses, as well as tips for new nurses coming in to the profession. This show is meant for nurses in all professions, from bedside, to education, to research, to academia, to leadership.
