Glens Falls Hospital’s Nurse Residency Program achieved accreditation with distinction from the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC).
ANCC Practice Transition Accreditation validates hospital residency programs that transition registered nurses (RNs) into practice settings that meet rigorous, evidence-based standards for quality and excellence.
Nurses in accredited transition programs, like the Nurse Residency Program at Glens Falls Hospital, experience curricula that promote the acquisition of knowledge, skills and professional behaviors necessary to deliver safe, high-quality care. Providing a structured framework for didactic content, nurses engage in experiential learning and mentorship by experienced nurses over a 12-month period. This type of program has been associated with higher retention rates of new graduate nurses.
