The Canadian Association of Schools of Nursing (CASN) has announced a new residency program to address Canada’s nurse shortage. The Nursing Residency Program for new Registered Nurses will provide recent graduates with orientation and a progressive workload as they begin their careers. The program will also provide new nurses with supervised practice, workshops, and other supports for up to a year to foster their success. “Our structured, competency-based Residency Program supports the integration of nursing graduates into the workforce who are competent, emotionally resilient, and retainable,” said CASN Executive Director Cynthia Baker.
