The MUHC Nurse Fellowship program is designed to support the transition of the new RN from novice to competent practitioner according to Benner's model From Novice to Expert. The program utilizes a combination of learning activities including didactic instruction with case studies by clinical content experts, structured clinical immersion experiences with team precepting, structured mentoring and debriefing/self-care sessions, looping to related departments, and competency validation. The primary goal of the program is to enhance critical thinking skills, develop skills competency and self-confidence, and promote the delivery of safe and effective patient care.
