1. Guay, Jo'Anne. New graduate registered nurses' perceptions of transitioning to professional practice after completion of the new graduate guarantee orientation program.

Degree: 2013, Ryerson University

In Canada, the projected shortage of Registered Nurses (RNs) by 2022 is 60,000. This shortage is accentuated as Canadian New Graduate Registered Nurses (NGRNs) experience difficulties transitioning to professional practice. This study sought to explore NGRNs’ transition experiences in the 12 months post New Graduate Guarantee (NGG) orientation informed by Charmaz’s grounded theory methodology. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with ten NGRNs working in one urban, academic hospital in Ontario. The theory’s overarching category Discovering Professional Self highlights the NGRNs’ transition experiences as a progressive process with transitory setbacks. The early part of the process, described as Surviving without a Safety Net, involved Experiencing Fear, Figuring it Out, and Learning on the Job. In the later part of the process, the NGRNs’ experienced a Turning of the Tables as they described Being Trusted, Gaining Confidence, and Feeling Comfortable in their professional role. Recommendations focus on strategies to enhance NGRNs’ transition experienc Advisors/Committee Members: Bishop, Susan (Thesis advisor), Ryerson University (Degree grantor).

2. Kennedy, Victoria Logan. Desiring a balanced identity : a Heideggerian phenomenological inquiry into the pregnancy experiences of newcomer women to Canada living with HIV.

Degree: 2012, Ryerson University

The pregnancy experiences of newcomer women to Canada living with HIV is an important area within maternal health research which to date has been unstudied. Hence, the purpose of this study was to explore the meaning of pregnancy for newcomer women living with HIV. Heideggerian phenomenology was used as the methodology and guiding framework. Five women living in an urban setting in Ontario, Canada were interviewed. Through data analysis and using the four existentials of human existence Desiring a Balanced Identity emerged as the overarching theme of the pregnancy experiences of the five women. This overarching theme was intimately connected with the four essential themes which were uncovered during data analysis. These themes were The Situational Self, Living with the Good and the Bad, Support and Acceptance, and The Future Seems Brighter. Recommendations and implications for education, practice and organizational policy, and research are provided in light of the study findings. Advisors/Committee Members: Bishop, Susan (Thesis advisor), Ryerson University (Degree grantor).
