ARNBC Policy and Advocacy to Improve Nursing Student Transition

ARNBC is currently exploring gaps in nursing student transition as well as issues in the retention of new graduates in order to advocate for improvements across the province. If you are a new graduate and would like to be involved in this work, please email

Direct care nurses across the province understand the importance of ensuring new graduate nurses are well supported during their transition into the workplace. As a result, ARNBC’s Nursing Practice Advisory Council has identified new graduate retention, integration, support and education as a key priority, and is currently developing policy recommendations on how to provide the necessary support new graduates need and deserve.
