The Transition to Practice (TTP) Program is a concept-based curriculum that integrates professional practice and specialty population content to individualize each nurse’s orientation and optimize the use of teaching and learning best practice. Throughout the program, nurses are challenged to know, own, and practice their responsibilities for self-directivity, self-management, reflection, and peer feedback. By partnering with stakeholders, using the best evidence, evaluating practice and patient outcomes, transitioning nurses are successful in integrating previous experience with new knowledge and standards. The success of the program is measured on its ability to support growth and development, and decrease variation in practice.
