Kansas Develops Nurse Leader Residency Programs for State Nurses

The Kansas Nurse Leader Residency Program, developed by the Kansas Action Coalition in partnership with the University of Kansas Hospital, is meant for nurses in the state that work in acute care, long-term care, public health, and school health. Participants worked with a mentor to identify a problem in their community or organization, and implement an initiative to address the issue. Projects included: minimizing falls in a nursing home, identifying elevated lead levels in children, and implementing a sepsis assessment and management program in a critical access hospital emergency department.
