SNF Residency Gives Nurses ‘Ownership’ in Long-Term Care

Nurse residencies have long been associated with hospitals and the resources they provide, but long-term care facilities are starting to see their potential as they focus on hiring and retaining the best nurses.

When the University of Wisconsin realized new nurses were also starting to expect, or at least ask about, residency programs in long-term settings, that was a factor in the formation of the Geri-Res long-term care nurse residency programs, according to Kimberly Nolet, manager of the program and research manager for UW’s Center for Aging Research and Education.
