Assignment Task

Overview

Students will be randomly allocated to one of the following three contemporary transition issues (this will be your topic):

  • Bullying
  • Work-life balance
  • Personal expectations versus professional reality

This assessment is designed to assess students’ understanding of contemporary transitional factors as they apply to nursing. It will also allow students to demonstrate their ability to find and review literature, then apply the knowledge learnt to produce a self-care guide to assist themselves and their peers in managing transition to practice.

Purpose

In this task, students are required to demonstrate knowledge relating to understanding and addressing a transitional issue that can affect new graduate nurses. Students will be randomly allocated one of three issues. Using evidence from current scholarly literature, students are asked to complete two parts in this assessment related to their allocated contemporary transitional issue:

  • Part one is the production of a pamphlet that can be used as a resource for graduate nurses, and
  • Part two is a discussion of the selected issue.

A selection of pamphlets will be collated and provided to all students in the course as a graduation gift after marking has been completed and results released

Pamphlet

Create a multi-panel document that uses both visual and text-based elements to convey information. The layout should be clear, sequential and promote understanding of your chosen transitional issue. It should be viewed as a self-care guide and presented on two pages

The pamphlet should provide educational information that will help new graduates learn about the issue, including ways to address the issue, so that it does not detrimentally impact the new graduate nurses’ personal or professional life.

Research the transition Issue

Research and find appropriate references for the pamphlet. For more information see the references chapter in this Moodle Book.

Plan the pamphlet

Map out a structure and plan for how you will present the key points and what you will cover in each section of the pamphlet. The pamphlet must address information related to the following points: An outline of what the transitional issue is and why new graduates are likely to experience it

  • How to identify the signs related to this issue
  • What resources are available to address the issue and where to locate them
  • Self-help strategies to assist the graduate in addressing or managing the issue
  • What to do if these resources/strate
