Nurse Presentations (Nursing)

The Nurse Residency Program helps to transition newly licensed nurses to professional pediatric nurses. During the 12-month program, nurse residents orient to their unit and specialty areas, gaining valuable knowledge and clinical experiences in pediatric nursing. Cohorts begin twice a year in February/March and July/August. An evidence-based quality improvement project is one requirement of the program.

Many nurses at Children's Mercy Kansas City go on to contribute new knowledge to their profession, to serve their professional associations, to advocate for children's health and safety, and to improve the quality and safety of pediatric health care. The following presentations represent some of this work.
