Abstract

This article is a review of relevant literature exploring the factors that contribute to new graduate nurses' transition to home healthcare nursing. The results revealed themes that include introducing the nurse to home healthcare nursing, knowledge and confidence, and developing the professional role. The review findings suggest that home healthcare leaders should consider recruiting new graduate nurses to home healthcare nursing and provide a structured orientation program in a supportive and welcoming work environment.
