Guiding the transition of nursing practise from an inpatient to a community-care setting: A Saudi Arabian experience
Simpson, Elaine, Butler, Mollie, Al-Somali, Shayda, & Courtney, Mary D. (2006) Guiding the transition of nursing practise from an inpatient to a community-care setting: A Saudi Arabian experience. Nursing and Health Sciences, 8(2), pp. 120-124.
The purpose of this paper is to provide an overview of the Transitional Practise Model, which was used as the educational learning program to guide the transition of two Saudi nurses from an acute inpatient environment into a community setting. This model was informed by Benner's "novice to expert" concept and is grounded in experiential learning and critical thinking. The aim was to enhance knowledge and skills by providing opportunities for learning in order to make an effective transition from an acute inpatient environment into community nursing. The model was effective in guiding and bridging the gap for nurses to undertake a transition from a hospital inpatient environment into a community setting. The use of preceptors was invaluable in providing an understanding of the nature of professional practise through learning opportunities, mentoring, and support.
