AMN Healthcare (NYSE: AHS),  the nation's leading innovator in healthcare workforce solutions and staffing, and New York-Presbyterian Hospital (NYP), will present results of their New Graduate Residency Program during the Association for Nursing Professional Development (ANPD) Annual Convention in Las Vegas on July 14-17.

Jannise T. Baclig, PhD, RN, ‎clinical content director at The Center for the Advancement of Healthcare Professionals at AMN Healthcare, and Margaret Rose Morales, MA, RN, APRN, ACNS, NEA-BC of NYP, will present highlights from the program, which the two organizations developed with Gotham Per Diem, Inc. The program's objective was to increase the pool of experienced RN applicants to NYP while decreasing turnover and increasing retention.

The New Graduate Residency Program pairs a comprehensive nursing orientation with a 12-month residency program at the NYP host campus site, Weill Cornell Medical Center, to increase the skills, confidence and professional satisfaction of new graduate nurses. As a result of the partnership, New York-Presbyterian reported significantly more nurses to fill its per diem nursing need.

"Nursing demand is rising rapidly, so training partnerships between healthcare providers and workforce experts can be very important solutions," said Marcia Faller, RN, PhD, Chief Clinical Officer at AMN Healthcare. "The New Grad program by NYP and AMN shows how a hospital, with some help, can tackle the nursing shortage."
