Document Preparation

Tipton will help you accurately tell the story of your nurse residency program and and evaluate your PTAP self-study against the criteria set by the ANCC. 

Our PTAP document review service mirrors the process we developed for Magnet document review, which has helped 100% of our nursing team clients achieve ANCC Magnet designation. We can write the document or just edit the content you provide. In either case, we focus on four priorities during the PTAP review process:

● Addressing the “core requirements” – are you “answering the question”?

● Removing off-topic information 

● Prompting for missing information – we flag content that is required in the narrative that your writer has not provided. 

● Reviewing the examples you use to support your narrative 

Additional PTAP Services

Gap Analysis

Tipton’s highly experienced nursing certification consultants will perform an onsite analysis of your organization’s nurse residency program, which includes meeting with hospital staff to identify and collect examples that will meet all PTAP criteria.

All information collected will align with the 6 ANCC categories:

● Program Leadership

● Organizational Enculturation

● Development and Design of Program Faculty and Content

● Practice-Based Learning

● Nurse Professional Development

● Quality Outcomes

Document Submission

The final step of the process will include PTAP document submission. Tipton will create a fine tuned and structured package complete with bookmarks, table of contents, page numbering and all other required formatting for a smooth, successful submission. Lastly, we will package and provide you with 3 USB drives, containing your full application to forward to the ANCC and their appraisers to confirm your accreditation.
