Abstract:
New graduates entering practice experience a number of challenges in the practice settings. Their career trajectories are often influenced by a number of factors impacting on their choices, including such things as the availability of full time employment, family issues, choice of practice areas, and geographic placements. In this study, we report on employment surveys of new graduates over a period of five years of their practice to identify trends in employment, as well as those factors influencing these choices, and thus, these trends. Six years of data has been collected and reported, providing a rich source of data for the analysis of these trends. This knowledge is exceedingly useful in the design of health human resource policies that are responsive to the needs of new nurses, as well as supporting nurses as they gain experience in the practice setting. Identification of chosen practice settings and client groups, and correlation of those choices with student experiences in the educational program identify the importance of student clinical placements on future career decisions. Intentions to engage in careers in nursing education and nursing administration, and to continue graduate studies, are also explored, and again compared to past trends over time.
