Robinson CH, Yankey NR, Couig MP, Duffy SA, Sales AE. The Veterans Health Administration Registered Nurse Transition-to-Practice Program: A Qualitative Evaluation of Factors Affecting Implementation. Journal for nurses in professional development. 2018 Nov 1; 34(6):E8-E22.
Abstract: This qualitative evaluation was conducted to assess factors affecting implementation of the Veterans Health Administration Registered Nurse Transition-to-Practice program. Factors commonly mentioned in semistructured telephone interviews with Chief Nurse Executives, Program Coordinators, and their teams as affecting implementation fell into four primary domains: materials and support from the Office of Nursing Services, facility-level dynamics and resources, program-specific requirements, and program outcomes. Initiatives to provide support for program implementation are proceeding.
