Dr Naomi Malouf is a lecturer with the Queensland University of Technology’s School of Nursing, Undergraduate Clinical Unit Coordinator and Clinical Subject Area Coordinator. She is a registered nurse and has been an academic for over ten years. Currently Dr Malouf is a reviewer for the Collegian Journal (Australia) and Nurse Education Today (NET) journal. She is also a contributing editor for the International Journal for Research in Nursing.

Dr Malouf’s most recent presentation was at the 6th International Conference of Education, Research and Innovation Conference in Seville, Spain on The Facilitator Files: Supporting the supporters of nursing students.

Industry Research Activities 

Dr Malouf’s research focuses is 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 practitioner. 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.
