IONRP - Delivery Options

Flexible Format & Delivery

Our program can be implemented in a variety of clinical settings across the country, whether you are a small or large organization, this is the program for you. No need to wait until you have the magic number of new graduate nurses to start a cohort. Participants can access the program from anywhere, anytime. Enroll today!


There are two options facilities may choose when purchasing the Online Nurse Residency Program. Facilities that do not want to build their own infrastructure for a nurse residency program may prefer the online option, which provides a comprehensive, turn-key residency program that utilizes the online modules and monthly synchronous discussions via live webinar with the Nurse Residency Program Manager. The resident has the opportunity to network with other new graduates throughout the state and nation. Between the live webinars, the online community offers continued support to the resident through asynchronous discussion forums. The Nurse Residency Program Manager provides the resident with coaching and support to complete a quality improvement or evidence-based practice project in their facility.


Facilities with many new nurse graduates could choose the nurse residency program's blended option, which provides the online modules that serve as a base curriculum for an in-house residency program. In the blended option, nurse residents complete the didactic content online at their convenience and attend discussion groups in their facility that are organized and led by a facility-based residency coordinator. The facility’s residency coordinator will also mentor and support the residents through completion of a quality improvement or evidence-based practice project.

Expanded Apprenticeship Option

Facilities that want to streamline and unify their orientation process with the continued support of a nurse residency program can choose our apprenticeship option. With this option facilities not only get the online or blended option of the IONRP, but they get added resources to support the orientation process.
