Abstract
This study explored the essential nursing skills recognized by 6 clincal nurse educators through new graduate nurse education experiences and ways to improve nursing practice education using a mixture of focus group interviews and surveys. Of the total 119 nursing skills, 23 skills were evaluated as very important by all participants. In addition, clincal nurse educators pointed out that new graduate nurses fail to comply with basic principles such as the aseptic technique and that the manipulation of medical devices is immature. Clincal nurse educators recognized that new graduate nurses did not understand the patient’s situation well, that they were immature in dealing with unfamiliar situations, and that their attitude as a professional nurse was inappropriate. In order to improve the practical adaptability of new graduate nurses, it is necessary to improve the education system and develop programs for clinical practice education. The findings are expected to be a useful criterion for building practical content and methods of nursing education curriculum.
