Despite wide recognition that more attention needs to be given to the transition of the new nurse graduate into practice roles, no research has studied the transition of the new graduate through the pivotal first year in practice. The preponderance of existing literature on the new nurse graduate is dated. Furthermore, the limited numbers of studies that have been conducted with new nurse graduates have yet to describe the graduate’s perspective of the transition experience through the first year in practice. Thus, this study investigated the transition experience of the new nurse graduate through the first year in practice. The purpose of this study was to gain a better understanding of what it means for new nurse graduates to live through the transition of the first year in practice. The long-term goal of this research is to develop and test interventions that will prepare and assist the new nurse graduate with the transition from academic studies to clinical practice in the hospital. The following research question was investigated: What is the transition experience like for the new nurse graduate through the first year in practice? The study utilized van Manen’s phenomenological framework to guide the project of inquiry. New nurse graduates, recruited from a Magnet Hospital, participated in three semi-structured interviews at 3 months, 6 months, and 1 year. The purposeful sample for this study was comprised of two subgroups of new graduates (BSN degree, ADN degree). Six participants from each of the subgroups of education preparation were recruited, resulting in an overall sample size of 12 participants. This research revealed nine themes and one subtheme, which were presented in the context of van Manen's four lifeworld existentials – Lived Space, Lived Time, Lived Body, and Lived Relations. These findings have implications for nurse leaders in the hospital, nurse leaders in academics, and nursing research. AN: MN030360
