NYC launches 1st city-led nurse residency program in the US

New York City launched the Citywide Nurse Residency program, the first of its kind in the country.

NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio, Deputy Mayor J. Phillip Thompson and Department of Small Business Services Commissioner Gregg Bishop announced the launch of the program at 24 participating hospitals. The year-long program aims to improve the transition to the workplace for newly graduated nurses. It is being offered by NYC in collaboration with the Greater New York Hospital Association, NYU Langone Health and New York-Presbyterian Hospital. The organizations will help the participating hospitals implement the program.

"Research and experience tell us that nurse residency programs lead to improved nurse retention and satisfaction, and a greater level of confidence for new nurses as they transition from the classroom to the bedside," said Kenneth E. Raske, president of the Greater New York Hospital Association.

Via the program, 500 nurses will gain specialized, on-the-job training focused on ethics, decision making, clinical leadership as well as incorporating research-based evidence into practice. The curriculum will be developed by Vizient / American Association of Colleges of Nursing.
