Outlines the positives and particulars of workplace socialisation – essential for new nurses
This module is written for both the Graduate Nurse Transition Programs (GNTPs) and the first-year post-GNTP nurse. Transitioning from nursing student to registered nurse is a process of socialisation, and learning your new team’s skills and behaviours is integral to becoming a part of it.
While theories on teamwork abound, the reality for new graduates is not clear-cut. With experience and confidence, however, and by following the program set out in this module, you will be in a good position to find a team to suit your career aspirations and nurse successfully.
The module involves: considering the make-up of any team, beginning with overt and covert values held by the team; defining the new role, responsibilities and accountability mechanisms; learning to assess as accurately as possible one’s contribution to the team; and planning and organising in order to maximise chances of success in the new team.
Completing this online module accumulates one hour of CPD for nurses.
