New Grad Transition to Professional Practice Action Team Backgrounder

Team leaders:

  • Tracy Lust: Quality, Safety and Accreditation Leader, Provincial Health Services Authority
  • Heather Straight: Regional Manager, Clinical Education Vancouver Coastal Health


The New Graduate Action Team is the place for British Columbia nursing graduates to connect!

This Action Team provides a virtual forum for members to learn from, discuss with and connect to provincial and national resources.

Current literature, including New Grad Transitional theory, will be the basis of interaction and discussion.

Managers, educators, preceptors…if you work with new grads…you are welcome participants in this action team!

Vision:  To be the virtual British Columbia meeting place for new graduate nurses and those who work with them. 

Mission: Support new graduate nurses through their first year of the nursing profession by acknowledging and sharing new grad transition theory and actions.


Any InspireNet member who is a new grad or who works with new grads is encouraged to join this team.
