NUR3816 Module 1 Assignment Worksheet Melissa Constantineau research on new graduate nurse transition and, has developed an evidence-based standardized transition to practice model (Silvestre, 2017). The bottom line is, this is not only the right thing to do, but will yield a cost savings across the board for each new nurse hired. Retention rates are a big issue. We need to start somewhere. 3. Select a second factor that supports your stance. Describe the factor and clearly explain how it is supportive of your stance. ( Be sure to add reference as support & in text citation. Minimum word count of 150 words.) Our text tells us that being a competent nurse requires ongoing learning, and continuing education. Nursing is “not quite” a profession in that many employed nurses have educational backgrounds that end at the associate’s level, and educational programs themselves must be improved. Our profession’s goal is to have 80% of all registered nurses at the BSN level by 2020. That’s an aggressive goal, and puts some pressure on those of us recently completing our associates degree. As new nurses, we need to seek ways to embark on the “seamless and academic progression” that comes with these goals. We all want to make a difference, and many of us fear being disillusioned by the system. An article I read recently about lifelong learning suggests we should be motivated by a constant striving to know more, be better, and improve outcomes for patients (Milne, 2016). Professional articles from many sources claim that maintaining competence in nursing is a professional responsibility (Gaberson & Langston, 2017). Whether within the organization we work or otherwise, it will be crucial for us to be creative and take advantage of a wealth of resources to do the best justice to nursing care as we possibly can, which means advancing education. Findings indicate that there is room for improvement in many schools with regard to the integration of all six QSEN competencies (Lewis, Stephens, & Ciak, 2016).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
