The purpose of the doctor of nursing practice (DNP) project was to develop a proposal for a structured pre-licensure program and a dedicated educational unit. The project encompasses a plan to present these proposals to nursing administration, which would offer two potential solutions to solve the transition to practice gap. NRPs and dedicated education units (DEU) are two solutions to enculturate new nurses before, during, and after their first year of practice. The project's goal is to help reduce high turnover rates for both PCTs and new graduate nurses (NGNs) through a pre-licensure residency program and/or a didicated education unit. These can assist in bridging the transitional gap between finishing school and entering practice for new nurses entering the profession.
