The role of mentorship during the transition from NHS nursing to private practice

The role of mentorship during the transition from NHS nursing to private practice AbstractNursing theory suggests that, when an experienced nurse moves into a new clinical area, there is a regression of practice equivalent to that of a novice nurse. This event is likely to generate significant demands on the nurse as he/she strives to regain their previous professional standing; for example, the nurse will be required to develop new clinical skills and adapt to a new working environment. When the move is from the NHS into private practice, demands may be particularly high, as the nurse is faced with the challenges of acquiring business skills and adjusting to unfamiliar methods of working. These skills are not the prerequisite of an NHS-based nurse. There is vast evidence to support that mentorship plays a significant role during the transitional period from nurse to graduate nurse, and from novice to expert. This study will explore the role of mentorship during the transitional period from NHS nurse to aesthetic nurse in private practice and aim to identify if mentorship is able to play a part in this transitional journey. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Aesthetic Nursing Mark Allen Group

Abstract

AbstractNursing theory suggests that, when an experienced nurse moves into a new clinical area, there is a regression of practice equivalent to that of a novice nurse. This event is likely to generate significant demands on the nurse as he/she strives to regain their previous professional standing; for example, the nurse will be required to develop new clinical skills and adapt to a new working environment. When the move is from the NHS into private practice, demands may be particularly high, as the nurse is faced with the challenges of acquiring business skills and adjusting to unfamiliar methods of working. These skills are not the prerequisite of an NHS-based nurse. There is vast evidence to support that mentorship plays a significant role during the transitional period from nurse to graduate nurse, and from novice to expert. This study will explore the role of mentorship during the transitional period from NHS nurse to aesthetic nurse in private practice and aim to identify if mentorship is able to play a part in this transitional journey.
