Transition-to-practice programs may contribute to new grad success
The transition from nursing student to RN often is rocky. Aside from being challenged clinically by the minute, newly licensed nurses also must adjust to demanding institutional cultures. These stresses can contribute to clinical errors and employee turnover. Situational clinical coaching or guided clinical decision-making for new graduate nurses is key to a good transition program, said Patricia Benner, RN, Ph.D., FAAN. But equally important is an institutional culture that welcomes new graduate nurses and appreciates the stresses of the graduates' first year.
