Course Description:

Geri-Res is a residency program for the new long-term care nurse, expertly developed at the Center for Aging Research and Education at the world-class University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Nursing. Because we know that when nurses love what they do, and know they are doing it right, they’re greatly improving care and impacting lives. Research shows that nurse residency programs improve nurse retention, lower costs, and improve nurse preparedness for safe and competent practice. GERI-RES, an evidenced-based transition to practice residency program for long-term care nurses, has been instrumental in improving overall clinical outcomes, nurse preparedness, recruitment, and retention in skilled nursing and assisted living settings. This course teaches the importance of a nurse residency program including clinical support systems, its impact on recruitment and retention of clinical staff as well as creating a professional development plan for long-term care nurses.
