Transition-to-Practice (TTP) program is designed to move the new
graduate from critical thinking to clinical reasoning and
professional nursing judgement. This is done through an innovative
program, based on current evidence, designed to support the new
nurse through in-person and virtual interaction. The program
prepares the new graduate nurse by offering hands-on skills and
reflective discussions that will ease the transition into the role
of professional nurse.
TTP’s innovative program curriculum will start with 4 in-person
on-boarding classes that will not only have interactive clinical
reasoning case scenarios but will have an RN guide you on how to
chart the patient’s case in our electronic system; “charting like a
nurse”. Subsequently, you will have 3 weekly in-person clinical
reasoning sessions followed by regularly scheduled virtual debriefs
to discuss real patient situations and clinical wins from your
unit. Our program mentors will be with you to support you at every
step; celebrating your wins and overcoming challenges!
