The army nurse practitioner transition to practice program

Edward Yackel, Daniel Blaz, Brad Franklin, Grace Northrup


The Army Nurse Corps established a Transition to Practice Program (TPP) to better position Army NPs to excel in complex clinical environments. The purpose of the TPP was to provide a structured educational transition to clinical practice for new graduate Advance Practice Registered Nurses (APRNs). A small pilot (test-of-change) was conducted at two Army hospitals. The results of the pilot indicated that length of time was the most important factor for the program. Findings during this pilot implementation were limited, but provide great insight into revising the program in order to produce skilled and confident Army APRNs.
