Assists graduates making the leap from university to the ‘real world’ – the workplace

Regarding the expert nurses around you, you may feel, as a graduate, that their competence and confidence is worlds beyond yours. Indeed, one of the hardest things to come to terms with is the apparent discrepancy between the ways you see a clinical situation and the way it seems to be apprehended by an expert nurse.

While your studies may have taught you to make decisions by exercising ‘clinical judgment’ – breaking down situations into ‘bite-sized’ pieces before reintegrating them – experienced nurses rarely do this in their practice. So what does that mean for you?

This module will answer some of the questions graduates struggle with after entering the workforce; such as why didn’t university prepare me properly for the real world? How do I get that kind of confidence and competence? And what exactly does it mean anyway?

Completing this online module accumulates one hour of CPD for nurses.
