Nurse residents were asked to write a targeted story at the end of the 12-month program. Qualitative content analysis by two reviewers yielded five themes: team and teamwork, gratitude, asking questions, the art of nursing, and change. Findings are supported from previous research and add new information to the body of knowledge about the experience of nurse residents. The nursing professional development practitioner can apply this knowledge in supporting and strengthening residency programs.
