Build meaningful academic-practice partnerships

To transform workforce development in nursing

Hospitals need a steady and predictable supply of practice-ready nurses to ensure quality patient care and relieve staffing issues and burnout.

But the nursing workforce is facing critical issues.

  • Universities lack the capacity to prepare enough new entry-level BSN or MSN nurses
  • New graduate nurses require extensive hospital-powered orientation to bridge the gap in practice readiness
  • Nurse retention and turnover challenges strain hospital resources

Solving healthcare’s most critical workforce challenges requires a comprehensive solution that addresses needs across the ecosystem.

Together, we can build a sustainable, long-term solution that will transform nursing workforce development.

Unlock transformative partnerships. Unlock greatness.

Keypath Connect incorporates elements of competency measurements and tracking that will allow the system to know exactly where a new graduate is in terms of their progression toward practice readiness. This means that there is no need to start over. Knowing where each new graduate is in their development allows you to build on their current foundation.

Keypath Connect aids in assessing the theory-practice gap and eliminates duplicative content, improves progression, and aligns performance goals. Utilizing a curated final semester clinical experience, the soon-to-be new grad nurse will make early progression into new grad orientation content, accelerating practice readiness.

Keypath Connect helps build a seamless transition from educational clinical experiences to onboarding workflows, allowing preceptors to directly benefit from their efforts in developing new practice-ready team members. Creating efficiencies improves the experience for the preceptor, department leadership, and the new grad nurses.
