Transition to Practice

Transition to Practice

 

What is transition to practice?

Transition to practice is a critical time during which a nurse develops the skills and attitudes necessary for autonomous nursing practice within her or his level of licensure. Transitions in nursing practice occur when an individual completes a nursing education program and obtains initial or a new level of nursing licensure, when a practicing nurse transitions to a new nursing role/responsibilities at the same level of licensure, or when a nurse re-enters the workforce after an extended absence. Current research suggests that successful transitions to practice result in improved patient safety and a better quality of nursing care.

Learning Resources | Definition

The materials, activities, and technologies that facilitate the development of students’ knowledge, skills, and behaviors necessary to ensure the achievement of the end-of-program student learning outcomes and program outcomes.

Learning resources and technology are selected with faculty input and are comprehensive, current, and accessible to faculty and students.

Web-Enhanced/Supported Course | Definition

A course where the instruction occurs through traditional face-to-face delivery, and students are expected to attend the in-person class. The learning management system (LMS), or other web-based system, is used to support the course. Course material, such as syllabi and calendars, are generally posted for easy student access. In addition, students may also be expected to participate in web-based learning activities, such as discussion boards or learning activities posted online.

In addition, an LMS, or other web-based system, is used to support the course through the posting of course materials, such as syllabi or course announcements; however, students are not required to participate in web-based learning activities.
