The two-year postgraduate training program for nurses is one of the program's regular activities, divided into three phases that include location-based curriculum training (3 months), core curriculum training (9 months), and professional courses training (12 months). This paper describes the origin, current implementation status, and efficacy / key problems of this two-year post graduate training program, Information regarding the opinions of new nurses, preceptors, and nursing managers on the three aspects is drawn from the author's relevant professional experience, interactions with nurses, and a review of the literature. Findings include: (1) nursing departments should operate in accordance with TJCHA guidelines; (2) department training should be adequate to promote the ability and willingness of nurses to train a new generation of clinical preceptors; and (3) participant opinions on project execution progress and difficulties.
