Facing challenges and discovering opportunities12 July 2022
Have you ever commenced work in a new area of nursing practice, one where you have no previous experience? You may have felt nervous with a sense of trepidation, unsure, excited, and motivated all at the same time. If you have found yourself in such a situation, you are not alone.
Whether commencing work as a new graduate, embarking on a career change, or being deployed, for most people, the transition from one clinical area to another is a time of upheaval often impacting a person’s identity, role, relationships, and behaviours regardless of their previous experience. Factors influencing the transitioning of nurses between clinical areas include global nurse shortages, particularly in specialist areas, through to changing community needs, for example, the COVID-19 pandemic.
