Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

New nursing graduates' perceptions of support
by Hohenleitner, Stacy Grant, Ph.D., Villanova University, 2017, 143; 10957180
Abstract (Summary)

Supporting new nursing graduates (NGs) through the professional socialization transition process has been an ongoing challenge facing nursing leaders. As NGs begin their professional socialization transition process, they begin to acclimate themselves to their job responsibilities. Employers provide NGs with established education and training without established evidence-based sources of support. The literature frequently indicated that institutional support for NGs is provided or should be provided without describing how this is accomplished. Without support for NGs during their professional socialization transition period, they could feel unsatisfied within their roles and resign from their positions or leave the nursing profession. The purpose of this research study was to explore the reflective perceptions of NGs regarding the support they received as well as what support they would have liked to receive during their professional socialization transition process. Through this study, this researcher began to describe the support that NGs desire to successfully transition from NGs to registered nurses.
