[Research Presentation] The purpose of this study was to explore the dissatisfactory working experiences and the related impacts on career development and adaptation strategies developed by Taiwanese registered nurses with bachelor degree during their first empirical year. This study used face-to-face semi-structured interviews to collect data. Data were analyzed by qualitative content analysis methods. Twenty participants worked in a medical center in Taiwan enrolled in this study. They were all unmarried, and only one male included. The dissatisfactory experiences included lacking of positive identification of professional progress, insufficient profession competence and discontented performance, áhealth concerns, and worries about potential medical confrontations. The factors contributing to their sense of dissatisfaction were inadequate profession competency and clinical experiences, lacking harmony interpersonal relationship, work overload, and insufficient support. As a result, these experiences leaded to low grade of profession identification, unsatisfied caring quality, without quality of life. The further impact of their perceptions was losing vision toward future nursing career.áThree stages of adaptation identified during first year was chaos, clarification, and reconfirmation stage. The mission of chaos stage of was to gain the power of controlling nursing works. The following stage of clarification was to gain more power of controlling nursing works and mastering the balance between work and personal lives. The goal of third stage was to re-assure the certainty toward nursing professionalism. Different missions in every stage induced different coping strategy accordingly. In Taiwan, efforts from faculty members, students themselves and clinical coaches are needed to prepare BSN students to achieve smooth transition from school to hospital. Learning the contexts framing their dissatisfactory experiences and adaptation strategies in the first empirical year would reinforce the health administrators and nurse educators to establish efficient orientation program and help the novice RNs to develop stage-specific strategies to adapt nursing challenges.
