Description
There continues to be considerable debate about how to prepare nursing students so that they are ready to practise. A recent study with RNs, managers and educators in Alberta showed that: · there is a strong perception that practice-readiness is an idealistic, largely impossible goal that has reached \"mythical proportions\" because there is a limit to how much students can learn in generalist-oriented programs · the level of practice-readiness is often considered to be an educational problem, but it is more of a larger systems-level problem · there is a persistent perception that nursing programs do not include sufficient opportunity to develop strong psychomotor skills · the multiple stressors experienced by new graduates result in a pervasive fear of making mistakes and \"not doing a good job\" for six months to a year following graduation (availability of consistent mentoring, orientation and clinical support on the unit help to alleviate this stress)
