Issue: September/October 2017


Description

The AAACN Ambulatory Care Registered Nurse Residency Program is distinct from orientation by providing a coordinated and comprehensive transition into an ambulatory care clinical environment. The Ambulatory Care Registered Nurse Residency Program is designed to strengthen the transition support for new registered nurse (RN) graduates and RNs new to the ambulatory care specialty. Residency programs have the potential to promote the role of the RN and his or her commitment to the profession of nursing. A broad, integrated, and comprehensive structure is critical to successful implementation and sustainability.
