Home About Versant Voyager

Versant Voyager®

To create greater efficiency and enhance processes, Versant® employs Versant Voyager®, a web-based suite of workforce development applications. Voyager provides the necessary infrastructure for ongoing Versant New Graduate Nurse Residency™ (VNGNR™) administration, implementation, evaluation, and refinement. Additionally, it gives access to a large number of users and provides a means to maintain consistent and uniform standards.

Versant Voyager® functionality includes:
  • Access to the VNGNR curricula and content
  • Scheduling and calendar
  • Real-time documentation of competency validation, the progress of a resident or fellow, and goal achievement
  • Expedited communication and notification to key VNGNR participants
  • Data collection and reporting

It is important to note that Voyager is not intended to supplant the "high-touch" character of the Versant New Graduate Nurse Residency. On the contrary, Versant Voyager is a tool that enhances the VNGNR by harnessing cutting-edge technology to automate processes. Voyager is designed to mimic the workflow of key RN Residency personnel. All users can learn it quickly and easily. Versant provides Voyager user training sessions during the RN Residency start-up phase, as well as Voyager User Training Guides for ongoing user training and reference.

Versant Voyager provides tools that ensure program outcomes are easily tracked and achieved at both the hospital and health system level. Versant Voyager allows an organization to evaluate individual resident or fellow performance as well as overall VNGNR performance in real time. More than an educational resource delivery system for our 200-plus peer-reviewed learning modules, Versant Voyager collects and organizes data throughout the VNGNR and allows you to benchmark your performance against comparison groups and other VNGNR clients across the Versant National Database.

Versant Voyager enables the hospital and its residents to immediately access program content, rapidly schedule activities, communicate important information, and quickly evaluate progress.

Versant Voyager is used to collect nearly 200,000 separate data points for each resident. Versant Voyager provides a level of granular detail otherwise unattainable through manual or time-delayed paper-based methods. Residents and fellows can view their progress and preceptors can track and update residents’ and fellows' competencies through both objective and subjective measures.

Versant Voyager can be accessed via the Web using any computer with Internet access.
