Healthcare organizations that have implemented Versant’s Competency-Based System™ have reported numbers that indicate stability and, at times, improved outcomes. This stability is a testament to decades of experience, expert knowledge, preceptor and participant buy-in, and clinical competency development that meet the needs of healthcare organizations. This report focuses on retention, emotional health, and the need for a standardized staffing strategy with an adaptive nursing model. Attention is primarily on Versant new graduate nurses and their 2020 data outcomes.
