Question:

Part A: Facilitating Transition To Professional Practice

This assessment requires you to consider how the concepts and features of belonginess, resilience, emotional intelligence and communication will facilitate your transition to professional practice based on Judy Boychuk Duchscher’s transition theory, doing, being and knowing.

Boychuck Duchscher, J & Windey, M 2018, Stages of transition and transition shock, Journal for Nurses in Professional Development, July/August, 228-232. doi: 10.1097/NND.0000000000000461

You will need to think about the four concepts of belongingness, resilience, emotional intelligence and communication described in the first two topics of this course, each of their features, and how they apply to three stages of transition to practice. For example, when considering the concept of belongingness your will need to list the features of this concept and how they relate to the stage of ‘doing’. You will then need to consider how the features of belonginess may change as your transition to practice moving through the stages of ‘being’ to ‘knowing’.

Use Microsoft PowerPoint to prepare your concept map with Transition to Professional Practice (TPP) in the centre and then the arrows out to the four concepts leading to three stages of transition as described by Judy Boychuck Duchscher.

Figure 1: Example of how to present and format your concept map. C1 = Concept 1; C2 = Concept 2; C3 = Concept 3; C4 = Concept 4.

In PowerPoint, select Insert > Shapes > Flowchart to add text. Connect shapes to show their relationship using arrows (Insert > Shape > Lines). If you use the mid-point dots to connect shapes, you will be able to move the shapes and they will remain connected. You may use colour and/or different shapes to enhance your understanding of the relationship between the different concepts in your map.

Once you have a basic structure, think about the different features of the four concepts you have learnt in the course’s online topics in weeks 1 to 4.

You will need to consider how the different features of each concept may evolve as you transition into professional practice.

Part B: Transitioning To Professional Practice – A Case Study

Case-study

Mark is a graduate Registered Nurse who is in his fifth month of his Transition to Professional Practice Program (TPPP). Mark is completing a rotation in the Acute Assessment Unit (AAU) in the hospital where he is undertaking his TPPP. He would like to pursue a nursing career in the Emergency Department following his TPPP. So far, Mark has received positive feedback from senior nursing staff and his graduate nurse educator. However, Mark has recently being experiencing doubts about his knowledge and his competency especially when working in such a busy and high acuity area. He is increasingly feeling overwhelmed by the role of the registered nurse, his responsibilities and performance expectations within his TPPP. His peers noticed that Mark has become quiet and withdrawn.Assessment task

  • Based on Judy Boychuck Duchscher’s transition to practice theory, describe what stage of transition to professional practice Mark is and discuss what may indicate that Mark is experiencing transition shock.
  • Describe how Mark’s current situation and experience may impact the delivery of high-quality person-centred care.
  • Drawing upon the four concepts and features of each concept presented in your concept map, describe evidence-based strategies that will assist Mark to continue his successful transition to professional practice.

Your written essay should include an introduction, body and essay. Your work should be supported by relevant and up-to-date peer-reviewed evidence (e.g., published articles). You are required to cite references using UniSA Harvard referencing.

Your essay should be formatted according to the School of Nursing and Midwifery Academic Writing Requirements.

You will need to consider how the different features of each concept may evolve as you transition into professional practice.
