Abstract
The aim of this descriptive study was to examine the impact of residency programs on clinical decision-making of new Saudi graduate nurses who have completed a residency program in comparison to new Saudi graduate nurses who did not attend a nurse residency program. A convenience sample of new graduate nurses (N=98) using self-administered questionnaire from three hospitals in Saudi Arabia was employed for this study. Overall, residents’ clinical decision-making skill levels were significantly higher compared to non-residents (t=23.25 and p=0.000). This study finding supports the international nursing literature that residency programs improve new graduate nurses’ clinical decision-making skills. In addition, this study highlights the need for effective residency programs that are designed to prepare new graduate nurses, which will in turn improve patient care.
