Abstract

Today’s practicing nurse faces many challenges and opportunities, and as a result, new graduate readiness for practice has increasing importance.

A pilot project designed to guide preceptors in the role of educator fostered the development of new nurse competencies that helped facilitate transition to professional practice.
