Moving from the protective walls of a nursing program to independent nursing practice can be a sobering transition for many new graduates. Many new nurses may feel overwhelmed and insecure as they embark on the work world and the responsibility of becoming a licensed nurse. The growth of knowledge and the complexity of the nursing profession makes it impossible for a new nurse to graduate from school with all the skills and abilities necessary to function independently in the complex world of patient care. Developing clinical competency and a comfort level with your nursing practice skills represent a major challenge for entry level nurses. This core knowledge is essential in order for you to provide timely, sensitive, safe, and quality care to the patients with whom you work. As you prepare to enter the health care arena and accept responsibility and accountability for patient care, please remember these important concepts from your fundamental nursing courses that can help you in developing a strong foundation for safe professional nursing practice
