Development of Standards and Processes for Accreditation of Transition to Practice Programs

Many healthcare agencies have implemented transition to practice (TTP) programs for recently graduated and recently hired nurses. The literature suggests that the benefits of TTP programs include increased quality of patient care and safety, and increased retention of a nurse as an employee. Participants will develop an understanding of the ACEN process for TTP Accreditation and the anticipated benefits of TTP program accreditation.
