An expert guide to the complex, yet vital transition from student to employed nursing practitioner

The transition from nursing school graduate to professional nursing practitioner can be stressful and confusing. Unlike educational programs, life doesn't provide a set syllabus. After graduation, what steps do you need to take? How do you get certified? Where should you apply for work? Successful Transition to Practice is a much-needed guide to help you navigate the path from new graduate to the certification and on-boarding process and successful employment.

Successful Transition to Practice walks you through the most confusing aspects of transitioning, from studies to full-time work, including applying for licensure, what to expect in an interview, insurance needs, hospital credentialing and more. Filled with expert advice, illuminating examples, and essential information, this important resource provides a framework to help you complete the transition to nurse practitioner with confidence.

  • Planning for graduation

  • Applying for state Licensure
