Naomi is a registered nurse and has been an academic for over six years, teaching and researching nurses and their role within various settings in such universities and the University of Sydney (SYD), the University of Technology, Sydney (UTS) and New South Wales (UNSW) university. She has a Bachelor of Nursing (honours 1) and a PhD (SYD) and teaches and co-ordinates nursing units throughout the undergraduate cohort that focus on beginning practice, it’s associated skills and theoretical knowledge development. Naomi’s research focuses on the transition experiences of New Graduate Nurses (NGNs) as they move into and through their first year of clinical practice. Recent new directions in research thinking include an examination of formally organised, hospital/institutionally run “transition to practice” programmes, and, their impact on the beginning practioner. Methodologically, she is a qualitative researcher most comfortable in the realm of grounded theory (Charmaz, Noerager Stern, Glaser), but has a diverse understanding of the workings of qualitative inquiry.
