“Dr. Duchscher’s book represents a living example of the 2010 IOM’s vision as she makes the journey of professional role transition for new nurses ‘come alive’. This book offers the newest members of our profession insight into what to 'do' to optimize this journey for themselves, and equally important, she affords those of us who support them a framework by which to do so. This is a MUST READ for anyone working with new nurses!”

With over 40 years of professional nursing experience and 20 years working with new nurses as they transition to professional practice, Dr. Duchscher offers rare and powerful insights into what it is like to move from being a student to being a professional practitioner in the nursing discipline. The theory contained within this book not only ACCURATELY illustrates the experience of thousands of newly graduated nurses, but reveals that experience through POIGNANT and sometimes humorous stories told by new nurses themselves.
