Abstract

Population growth and aging increase the demand for skilled nurses. Hospitals face the challenge of supplying experienced and qualified caregivers. The cost of training new nurses remains significant. Nursing educators are pivotal in developing the nursing workforce, especially under tightening constraints. This article examines the development of a nursing internship program aimed at attracting and retaining newly graduated nurses and its effect on retention to the institution.
