Performance, satisfaction, and transition into practice of graduates of accelerated nursing programs.
This study examined differences in performance, job satisfaction, and transition into the professional role of new graduates of accelerated nursing programs compared with graduates of other types of prelicensure programs. The setting was a major medical center in the Southeast. The mean ratings for graduates' self-assessment of performance improved significantly from the beginning of their orientation to Year 1, except for competencies in research. There were no differences between accelerated and traditional baccalaureate program graduates.
