Abstract

This study describes and evaluates a structured program for orientation of new graduate registered nurses in a setting that has increased the number of new graduate RNs hired in recent years. It describes the elements of a supportive environment for new RNs and brings attention to the need to develop support and recognition of nurse preceptors, who are noted to be the cornerstone of support for new RNs as they make the transition from student to accomplished professional.
