Retention of new graduates to their first professional role: perceptions of those that have stayed
Metadata[+] Show full item record
There is an inability to retain new graduate nurses in their initial positions. Patricia Benner (1984) developed the From Novice to Expert Theory of nurse development outlining the nurses’ transition through the developmental stages of novice, advanced beginner, competent, proficient, and expert across time. There is little known about the reason(s) why nurses remain in their initial position, as previous research has focused on why nurse leave. To fill this gap in knowledge, nurses who have been retained in their original practice area, responded to the Practice Environment Scale of Nursing Work Index (PES-NWI) to provide their perceptions of what is right within their professional environments.
