    • Abstract:
      Research indicates support and training extending beyond orientation in the form of a year-long post-graduate nurse residency program (NR P) facilitates a successful transition-to-practice. The American Academy of Ambulatory Care Nursing (AAACN, 2017) published the Ambulatory Care Registered Nurse Residency Program curriculum encouraging organizations to implement NRPs in the ambulatory care setting. The experience of implementing a NRP in ambulatory care is not well documented. The purpose of this Quality Improvement (QI) project was to better understand the experience of RNs during their first-year transitioning to practice in the ambulatory care setting, as well as identify ongoing professional development needs with the intention of applying findings to customize and implement the AAACN NRP at a Midwestern, non-profit, healthcare organization (HCO). The HCO provides both primary and specialty care services in an ambulatory setting. Purposive sampling was employed to obtain a representative sample. To accomplish the purpose, a qualitative method was utilized to understand the experience and perceptions of the RN participants. Thematic analysis, guided by Braun and Clarke's seven-stage approach, using two reviewers (one the Principle Investigator, the second independent from the project) was utilized to identify themes. Both new graduate and experienced RN participants shared transition-to-practice was difficult and indicated belief a NRP, with both preceptor and mentor support, would provide the additional support to successfully transition. A need to improve the current orientation process and provide additional educational opportunities for current staff's professional development was also identified.
