We estimated annual mean concentrations of particulate matter with diameter <2.5 μg/m(3) (PM2.5) and <10 μg/m(3) (PM10), and nitrogen dioxide (NO2) at nurses' residences since 1990 using an atmospheric chemistry transport model...

Whether a nurse is a recent graduate or an experienced nurse who has recently joined the facility or department, a new nurse benefits from a transition period during which new skills, processes, and concepts can be learned. Training should offer new employees the opportunity to develop competency, experience, collegial relationships, clinical judgment, and, overall, specialized knowledge for application in the clinical setting...

OBJECTIVE: Research on nurse residency programs (NRPs) typically focuses on retention within the 1-year NRP or perhaps an additional year beyond. Few have evaluated the long-term impact of NRP, and none have adopted a longitudinal approach to follow cohorts over time. This study, conducted in a large urban academic medical center (AMC), examines the effects of the NRPs on former nurse residents (NRs) in 8 cohorts (2005-2012) and compares those who left the institution with those who remain...
