Transition to Practice

Transition to practice programs are defined as formalised education/support programs offered by employers for graduates in their first year of practice. They are workplace-based programs designed to consolidate knowledge, skills and competence, and to assist the transition from student to competent, confident and accountable professionals.

Transition to practice programs go beyond normal orientation and induction and offer graduates formal education time (including study days), supernumerary time, and clinical support.

Peninsula Health offers a range of Transition to Practice programs, including Nursing, Midwifery, Mental Health Nursing, Allied Health, Pharmacy, Radiology & Medicine.
