"The nurse residency program has been beneficial not only to our nursing staff, patients, and families but to our culture. The nurses who participated in the residency program have been excellent spokespeople about how the residency program has enhanced their nursing careers. Specific comments I have heard from participants are related to; critical thinking, teamwork, and patient outcomes. This program provided the nurses in a rural setting the opportunity to expand their knowledge base while gaining confidence and exhibiting pride in their chosen profession."

"The best part of initiating the Iowa Nurse Residency Program in our organization is to see the professional growth and development in our nurses!"
