RN Transition to Practice (TTP) Residency Program

The RN Transition to Practice (RNTTP) Residency Program was developed to increase the support and retention of newly licensed RN nurses. The RNTTP program assists with the transition of the newly graduate nurse from academia to practice and to improve the quality of patient care by providing additional training and support.

Nurse residency programs are now considered a benchmark of nursing practice. The RNTTP Residency Program at the Madison VA Medical Center has been accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education since 2015.  We are excited to offer this opportunity to all new graduate nurses that begin their nursing career at the Madison VA.  The Madison VA TTP residency program always accepts applications throughout the year.
