2019 International Nursing Association for Clinical Simulation and Learning.
Methods: The study used an exploratory design framed by a qualitative descriptive methodology. Six nurses who had completed 3 to 12 months of clinical practice after graduation participated in semistructured interviews which were thematically analysed.
Results: The importance of accepting responsibility, interprofessional communication, leadership skills, and promoting patient safety emerged as recurring themes.
Conclusions: This study provided new insights into the transfer of learning from university-based simulation experiences to students' practice after graduation. Further research with other groups of learners and larger sample sizes will be valuable in taking this work forward.
