Abstract

With the ongoing debate on transition-to-practice gaps and lack of readiness for practice by novice nurses, curricular enhancements and innovation are imperative. A feasibility study was undertaken to inform and assess the integration of an Accelerating to Practice (A2P) curriculum in an academic context. Data from senior capstone students, faculty, and clinical preceptors provide evidence of the usefulness and applicability of A2P to provide intentional learning outcomes targeted at new graduates’ areas of weakness. This experience was aimed at clinical decision-making with psychomotor skill-laden activities deemphasized. A2P scaffolding aided in deeper learning and resulted in improved student learning.
