5 Steps For Successful Transition

International Transition to Practice Program’s overarching goal is to facilitate the successful transition and adaptation of Filipino and other internationally educated nurses (IENs) in the United States and its healthcare settings.

  • U.S. Integration  Understanding what living in the United States is like
  • Workforce Integration  Understanding what it’s like to work in U.S. Healthcare Settings
  • Healthcare Technology Gaining competency in using common technology and equipment
  • Clinical Workflow Gaining competency in performing patient care and routines
  • Healthcare Transition Program Adapting to a new healthcare environment

Curriculum Delivery Model

  • Virtual

    Content can be delivered virtually. Leveraging technology and remote, adult learning behavior to close gaps in USA and Workforce Integration.

  • In-Person

    Content requires in-person checkoffs. Leveraging state of the art technology and training processes to reduce the clinical setting change.

  • Hybrid

    Global location of the nurses presents the opportunity to integrate hybrid learning where applicable. Meeting the learner where they physically are without losing education.
