LTC RN Residency Program

LTC RN Residency Program

Washington State University College of Nursing (WSU CON), the University of Washington School of Nursing (UW SoN) and the University of Washington Center for Health Workforce Studies are submitting an application proposal for a CMP grant for a LTC RN Residency program.  The purpose of this project is to develop, implement and evaluate a 12-month RN residency to enhance the readiness of RNs to practice in certified long-term care (LTC) facilities. The goals are to support state-wide implementation of LTC RN residencies to improve the quality of care and the quality of life of LTC patients/residents.  This will occur through stabilization of the RN workforce through increased ease of recruitment and retention, attainment of the Professional Competencies for Nursing Home Nurses, and enhanced job satisfaction.

They are looking for nursing homes in Seattle, Spokane, Vancouver and the Tri-Cities to participate and write letters of support for the grant.  Please see documents below for more information.
