Welcome to the reality : A literature review of the experience of working as a graduate nurse (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Varje år utexamineras cirka 4000 sjuksköterskor i Sverige. Nyutexaminerade sjuksköterskors ansvarsområde är omvårdnad och att som nyutexaminerad börja arbeta som sjuksköterska kan upplevas olika. Syftet: var att beskriva hur det upplevs att arbeta som nyutexaminerad sjuksköterska. Metod: En allmän litteraturstudie genomfördes och tolv vetenskapliga artiklar analyserades och beskrevs. Resultat: De nyutexaminerade sjuksköterskorna upplevde det som utmanande, stressande, oroande och utvecklande men kände sig otillräckliga i sitt arbete som sjuksköterska. Detta upplevdes när de arbetade självständigt och samarbetade med arbetskamrater och patienter. Praktiska moment som nyutexaminerade sjuksköterskor inte var vana vid att utföra väckte negativa känslor såsom oro och stress. Att få stöd av omgivningen i form av en bekräftande kommunikation och att ingå i vårdlaget var betydelsefullt. Diskussion: Det är därför av vikt att blivande sjuksköterskor får praktiskt träna skilda moment i omvårdnaden under utbildningens gång samt får stöd av omgivningen.

Abstract [en]

Background: Four thousand nurses graduate every year in Sweden. Although newly qualified nurses' responsibility lies in the caring of patients their experiences at starting work may differ. The objective: was to describe how it feels to work as a newly qualified nurse. Method: A literature review was conducted and twelve scientific articles were analyzed. Results: The newly qualified nurses experienced challenge, stress, worry, development and felt inadequate in her job as a nurse. This was experienced when they worked independently and collaborated with colleagues and patients. Practical steps that graduates nurses were not accustomed to performing aroused negative emotions such as anxiety and stress. Getting support of colleagues and others in the form of an affirmative communication and being part of the care team was also significant. Discussion: It is therefore important that prospective nurses are supported by their colleagues and are used in the training process of different operations in the nursing care.
