Abstract

New Graduate programs for the newly registered nurses (RN) have become common place in Australia. These targeted programs are designed to enable the new RN to be exposed to a number of areas in nursing, assist the new graduate (NG) nurse to build on existing knowledge and skills, and to enhance confidence and competence in their new role as a registered nurse (RN). The work environment in nursing is constantly changing and new RNs are learning and developing skills every day. This article will present an overview of how one Australian Day Surgery unit in Sydney, Australia has positively enhanced the learning of NG nurses.
