ANCC Practice Transition Accreditation validates hospital residency or fellowship programs that transition registered nurses (RNs) and advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs) into new practice settings that meet rigorous, evidence-based standards for quality and excellence. Nurses in accredited transition programs, like Baptist Health Floyd’s Nurse Residency Program, experience curricula that promote the acquisition of knowledge, skills and professional behaviors necessary to deliver safe, high-quality care.

“Baptist Health Floyd strives to provide high-quality, compassionate care to our patients. Helping nurses transition to patient care so they feel confident and prepared to perform effectively is extremely important to us. We are proud our Nurse Residency Program is recognized by ANCC as one of the highest-quality transition programs for nurses,” said Vice President of Nursing Kelly McMinoway. “ANCC accreditation gives new nurse graduates assurance that Baptist Health Floyd offers an elevated transition program with a clear course of instruction and reliable evaluation methods.”
