Title:
Transition to Professional Nursing Practice
Abstract:
Transition to Professional Nursing Practice
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2003
Author:Wiles, Lynn L., MSN, RN
P.I. Institution Name:Old Dominion University
Title:Senior Lecturer
PURPOSE: Transition to Professional Nursing Practice is a concentrated clinical practicum that enables the School of Nursing to partner with regional health care agencies to provide an intensive clinical experience in the last semester of the Baccalaureate program. Students will apply theoretical, conceptual and psychomotor learning in a structured clinical environment under the supervision of a staff nurse preceptor and a faculty mentor. IMPLEMENTATION: The experience is designed to assist the student to transition to the role of the beginning professional nurse in a clinical setting that most nearly matches the student's preferred area of clinical practice. During the clinical experience the student provides direct patient care to a group of patients appropriate to the unit. Additionally, students and preceptors work together in order to facilitate the process of professional role assimilation within the assigned setting, examine and practice application of change and leadership principles, and critically observe the role of the nurse as a leader in the delivery of patient care. OUTCOMES: From an educational standpoint, the Role Transition clinical experience enables the individual to evolve from a student role to that of a newly graduated nurse. It enhances decision-making skills, hands on clinical skills, incorporates nursing research and standards of practice into patient care, and requires the student to evaluate the role of the BSN as a part of the professional health care team. From a practice standpoint, Role Transition can be utilized as a recruitment tool since it allows the health care system to showcase the care delivered in that institution while enabling staff to screen the student for potential employment. The 120+ hour clinical experience experience provides the student a realistic idea of the requirements of the job and unit expectations before accepting a position, thereby limiting attrition.
