Transition to practice in acute care

We conducted a survey of Washington State acute-care hospitals on their Transition-to-Practice (TTP) programs for nurses. This was a second survey after WCN queried hospitals in 2010. With the help of the Washington State Hospital Association and the Northwest Organization of Nurse Executives, we attempted to distribute the survey to all 92 DOH-certified hospitals in the state and received 31 responses from hospitals in rural and urban settings, representing a wide geographic range.
