Marketing Tool Kit for UHC/AACN Nurse Residency Programâ„¢

Share |


The UHC has developed new marketing materials to assist AACN members with practice-partner discussions about the many benefits associated with the Nurse Residency Program. These discussions are very timely in light of the National Council of State Boards of Nursing’s calls to strengthen the transition to practice programs for new nurses: http://www.ncsbn.org/363.htm. AACN encourages schools to use the following materials to emphasize the outstanding outcomes related to the UHC/AACN Nurse Residency Program™.
