A common perception for a new nurse orientation program is one of several long days or weeks passively receiving information about an institution’s policies, procedures and other regulatory matters. One organization set out to change that perception with the implementation of the Essential Nursing Guidance and Growth Experience (E.N.G.A.G.E.) program.

The presenters describe one organization’s journey using E.N.G.A.G.E. to improve the satisfaction of newly hired experienced nurses while providing an umbrella for onboarding newly licensed nurses through various residency programs. This presentation includes an overview of E.N.G.A.G.E., tips for success, lessons learned and how the various clinical residency programs helped improve the retention of newly licensed nurses.
