Increasingly, research indicates that new graduate RNs are ill prepared to make appropriate entry level clinical judgments. Residency programs are designed to address the practice gaps most new graduate RNs experience. Also, unknown to the newly graduated nurse resident is the litigation process. In fact, the litigation process is not well known among nurses in general especially deposition. Deposition examines documentation that clinicians record during their care. Documentation that is untimely, unclear, or non-existent is exposed at a great cost to a clinician’s reputation. Errors in care can also be revealed in documentation. In order to rectify the knowledge deficit of deposition among nurse residents, simulation is used to increase awareness about that process. A pre and post survey is used to determine knowledge before and after the mock deposition. The nurse resident responds to interview questions related to their care of a fabricated patient chart. Learner Objectives Identify how nurse residents view the deposition process. Become familiar with the practice gaps that exist for Newly Licensed Nurse Residents (NLNR).
