New graduate nurses continue to experience difficulty in transitioning into practice. A literature review was conducted to identify factors that influence new graduate nurse transition. Data from 42 articles were extracted, and significant variables were synthesized from a social ecological perspective. Findings suggest that a complex interplay between intrapersonal, interpersonal, and organizational factors influence transition. A nursing professional development specialist plays a crucial role in implementing educational strategies that address factors across all three levels of influence.
