By retaining new nurses, participating organizations cite the NRP as helping them obtain and maintain Magnet designation from the American Nurses Credentialing Center.

The Vizient/AACN Nurse Residency Program™ supports professional development with a data-driven solution allowing organizations to compare against selected peers and network with others in the NRP program. NRP empowers nurses, increases retention while reducing turnover costs, and improves patient safety.
