Survey on Preparedness for Practice and Transition to Practice

Help a Colleague -- Forward Research Survey to New NPs

Candice Rettie, PhD 0 571
Dear NNPRFTC Colleagues:

I need your help recruiting new NPs to complete a national survey related to preparedness for practice and transitioning into practice.  Please forward the below message to new NPs and encourage them to complete the survey! -  Results from my 2 previous surveys have lent support for the need for NP residencies and fellowships and resulted in the following publications:

  • Hart, A.M. & Bowen, A. (2016). New NPs’ Perceptions of preparedness for and transition into practice.  Journal for Nurse Practitioners, 12(8), 545-552. doi:http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j. nurpra.2016.04.018

  • Hart, A.M. & Macnee, C.L. (2007). How well are NPs prepared for practice?: Results of a 2004 questionnaire study. Journal of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioner, 19, 35-42. doi: 10.1111/j.1745-7599.2006.00191.x

Note that the current survey is only for NPs who graduated between 2012-2016, and the survey itself screens for this in the first few items.  Also, it would be great to have NPs complete the survey who either have completed a residency or fellowship program.

Thank you! - Ann Marie
