Abstract:
The attrition of new graduate nurses from the nursing workforce is of great concern, particularly in the context of the current nursing shortage. Previous attempts to address the shortage, such as increasing student enrolment, have not taken into consideration the work experience of new graduate practitioners. The need for creative and holistic solutions is pressing. Through a literature synthesis, this poster situates the concept of lifelong learning as a key nursing workforce determinant. Specifically, the fostering of lifelong learning in nursing is conceptualized as a strategy to guard against the reality shock that new graduate nurses often experience as they transition from student to professional practitioner. When learning is understood as a continuum that extends beyond graduation, a bridge is created between the education and workplace sectors. Collaboration between these sectors is essential in generating and sustaining a high quality nursing workforce. The poster presents an overview of some key contextual elements, including new nurse reality shock and problematic work environments, and describes the notion of lifelong learning in nursing. Also depicted are the individual, socio-political, and organizational factors which facilitate lifelong learning in nursing, as well as the collaboration that must occur between the formative education and workplace realms.
