Nurses are knowledge workers in technologically advanced social environments providing care to patients with complex biopsychosocial health care needs. The Nurse Residency Program (NRP) is a transition to practice program designed to facilitate the professional socialization of the newly licensed registered nurse (NLRN) with the goal of developing competency in providing safe and quality patient-centered care. Constructivist learning strategies are an instructional framework that promotes social facilitated self-directed learning. The purpose of the project is to determine if using constructivist learning strategies are an effective learning method in a NRP as measured by the Casey-Fink Graduate Nurse Experience Survey.
