Educating modern learners requires imagination, innovation, and touch of bravery! In the next 24 hours, over one million people around the globe will establish regular access to the internet for the first time (Sanou, 2016). With this access to information, learners can evolve their knowledge at an unprecedented pace, defying the conventional barriers to learning and education. This demands that NPD Practitioners reimagine the learning environment, the learner, and the role of teacher, and become “transformers”!<br /> <br /> As a member of the nation’s “gold standard” in Nurse Residency Programs (NRP), our goal has been to provide Newly Licensed Nurses (NLN) with a formalized transition to practice (TTP). In spite of consistently positive outcomes, a SWOT analysis and extensive review of stakeholders’ feedback was performed by a team of NPD Practitioners to determine if there was further opportunity for program optimization.<br /> <br /> The concept of “if it’s not broken, don’t fix it” is no longer an option in a competitive marketplace where one million new nurses will be needed within the next six years (US DHHS, 2013)! Today, “broken” can simply mean failing to evolve, or exceed consumer expectations. For educational programs, our consumer is the learner, and their ability to practice in a safe and fulfilling manner is our ultimate outcome measure.<br /> <br /> Utilizing a backward-planning process starting with program outcomes, and working towards closing identified gaps, a curriculum redesign was performed which aligned national, professional, and organizational goals for TTP, and resulted in increased learner engagement, enhanced stress management ability, reduced program length, and an annual savings in excess of $55,000.00.
