Introducing the Vizient/AACN Nurse Residency Program

Vizient and AACN connects members with opportunities to learn, improve and build. The Nurse Residency Program (NRP) focuses on new graduate nurses as they enter practice. The evidenced-based curriculum delivers on three key areas:

  • Leadership
  • Patient safety outcomes
  • Professional development

Organizations cite that the NRP helped them obtain and maintain Magnet designation from the American Nurses Credentialing Center.

Our program supports professional development with a data-driven solution allowing organizations to compare against selected peers and network with others in the NRP program. NRP empowers nurses, increases retention while reducing turnover costs — it’s a program that yields improvements in patient care and safety.
