Patterson and Tagliareni discuss current literature on this challenging and puzzling issue and review current thinking about how to achieve program outcomes that address this issue. We discuss about how to reframe the concept of readiness and re-think competencies related to transition to practice in pre-licensure programs. This webinar explored approaches to address readiness within the nursing program curriculum.
