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.
