Clinical Nurse Transition Program Sets Nurses ahead
Marcy Sanchez, WBAMC Public Affairs
William Beaumont Army Medical Center hosted a graduating ceremony for Class 15-152 of the Brig. Gen. Anna Mae Hays Clinical Nurses Transition Program Dec. 8.

The six-month-long program allows new nurses to gain experience as a surgical-medical nurse while working alongside experienced nurses, who mentor the new nurses in hands-on procedures.

"The CNTP is a program for new nurses who have already graduated from a nursing program to get a good foundation before working on their own," said 2nd Lt. Lizamara C. Bedolla, a graduate of CNTP. "It's like a residency program for doctors."

Throughout the program, nurses learned advanced nursing topics such as pain management, ethical decisions, physiology-type techniques and critical-thinking skills.

"It advances their professional development and helps them understand 'I need to keep educating myself if I want to stay current in practice,'" said Dr. Thomas H. Miller, CNTP director. "They're all brand new 2nd lieutenants that have finished nursing school."
