Abstract

The nursing shortage has become an increasing problem for the healthcare field with statistics estimating the problem is only going to worsen as the years pass. New graduate nurses compromise a small percentage of the nursing workforce, but can help lessen the burden of the shortage. Nurse residency programs have been shown to increase the retention of new graduate nurses. By implementing nurse residency programs, there can be a viable solution to decreasing the nursing shortage that is currently affecting patient outcomes and care.
