Abstract

Despite the fast growth of healthcare jobs in the United States, there is a deficit in the nursing workforce. Literature has shown high nurse turnover within the first year as a new graduate nurse. Healthcare organizations will need to explore innovative ways to impact nursing retention and turnover to keep up with the growing demand. The purpose of this Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) project is to perform and evaluate a comprehensive review to determine the effect of a dedicated education unit (DEU) on nurse retention and turnover within an academic-practice partnership. Literature has shown the benefits of the DEU on nursing education and clinicals within schools of nursing but there is a gap regarding the benefit of the DEU for the academic practice partner. This DNP project will begin to show the benefits of the DEU prepared new graduate nurse on retention at the academic practice partnership organization and can be utilized as a starting point for more in depth and comprehensive concurrent reviews.
