    There is a shortfall of over 10% of the NHS workforce in the UK and the Nursing and Midwifery Council has reported that an estimated 18% of nurses leave the profession altogether within 3 years of qualification. Canada and the USA also face retention issues. The transition period from student to registered nurse is considered an important period during which the newly qualified nurse (NQN) gains experience. This article aims to analyse how the transition from student to registered nurse can be more effectively facilitated, thereby enhancing the delivery of patient care. It examines how NQNs perceive the transition period and discusses how effective transition supports the optimal management of patient care.
