Abstract:
Public health nurses are currently challenged to incorporate practice expectations such as the Canadian Community Health Nursing Standards of Practice (CCHN standards) and the Core Competencies for Public Health in Canada. Practice expectations for graduates hired into public health nursing change from those of a student in clinical placement to the application of the standards in all practice settings within the first two years of practice. Implementation of the core competencies and CCHN standards varies across health units in Ontario. There is no standardized orientation to inform new hires about public health nursing and there are gaps in public health preparation of undergraduates in baccalaureate programs, according to a recent CASN analysis of public health nursing curricula. To promote the transition to public health nursing, the "Orientation: Transition to Public Health Nursing" toolkit has been developed in partnership with provincial and national public health nursing groups, experienced public health nurses and evaluated by new graduates. The experiences of the project team in developing this resource and the results of this evaluation will be presented and have broad applicability to educators, clinical leaders, students and researchers as graduates provide feedback about overlap and gaps in their undergraduate and Orientation toolkit.
