Durham Regional Hospital, part of the Duke University Health System since 1999, is proud to offer a specialized training program geared toward new nurse graduates (Level - Clinical Nurse I):
Transition to Practice Program (formerly GEMS)
New graduate applicants are invited to apply for the Transition to Practice Program (TTP). Designed by the National Council of State Boards of Nursing, TTP is an enhanced model of orientation for new graduates which includes education for the new grad, and features:
- Dedicated preceptors
- Topics such as conflict resolution, communication, and quality assurance
- Program Coordinators to provide support and mentoring to new grads
This program is designed to increase job satisfaction, improve retention, and provide continuous professional development. New graduates are hired directly to a specific floor and partnered with a dedicated preceptor for the duration of their orientation.
In addition to strong preceptor support, TTP participants will enjoy:
- Educational sessions with guest speakers
- Mutual support from fellow TTP program participants
- A shift differential if working evenings, nights or weekends
- Reimbursement for NCLEX review course
To qualify for participation in the TTP program, nurses must be:
- A new graduate RN, with less than one year of experience
- Licensed in the state of North Carolina prior to orientation
The application for TTP is posted once per semester with varying start dates for each posting. We typically post in Feb/March for the May graduating class, and in Sept/Oct for the December graduating class.
To be notified by e-mail when we post our TTP requisition, or for more information about the TTP program, please contact: email@example.com, and include your anticipated graduation date (no resume). A group e-mail will be sent when the position is posted for Durham Regional Hospital.
