Undergraduate nursing programmes are designed to equip student nurses with the skills and knowledge necessary for their future work as professional nurses. However, the reality is that most new graduate nurses or nurses re-entering the workforce experience challenges including deficits in clinical and practical skills, workplace bullying and role ambiguity. This task requires you to critically reflect on these challenges as they relate to a beginning registered nurse. You will need to critically analyse the literature to:
1. Define transition in the nursing context as experienced and perceived by the newly registered nurses.
2. Identify and discuss four potential challenges during their transition to a registered nurse.
3. Discuss mechanisms and processes in place to support newly registered nurse in relation to the identified challenges.
4. Apply knowledge of workplace health and safety in terms of horizontal violence.
You will need to demonstrate critical thinking and reflective practice in your argument. It is expected that you will read widely around these topics and reference correctly in your paper.
