Prevent turnover with a nurse residency program and save up to $65,000 per nurse in new hire costs

'I believe that the Nurse Residency Program Builder is one of the most comprehensive resources I have seen that speaks to the whole of the transition experience for the newly graduated nurse. It is foundationally evidence-based but pragmatically focused; a start to finish support for the supporters. I applaud Jim Hansen and his team for producing this comprehensive, and what I believe will be seminal, support resource for the nursing community.'

Dr. Judy Boychuk Duchscher, RN, BScN, MN, PhD, Assistant professor, University of Calgary, Alberta, Canada
