Purpose: Because many NPs are hired individually in small practice settings, NP faculty at a small private university in northeast Florida developed an academic based Nurse Practitioner Fellowship designed to ease the transition to practice for graduating NPs.
Methods: Effectiveness of the Fellowship was determined by the scores obtained on the Nurse Practitioner Role Transition Scale, administered before and after the Fellowship.
Findings: FNP graduates overwhelmingly supported the value of the program and felt it helped ease their transition from RN to NP
