© 2018 John Wiley & Sons Australia, Ltd Aims: To synthesize the scientific evidence about new graduate nurses' transition to practice in the acute care setting and consider implications for nurses and nursing practice. Background: Despite the vast amount of literature on new graduate nurses' transition to practice, the transition of new graduate nurses is a global issue and remains at the forefront of discussions within the nursing community. Design: An integrative review. Review Methods: A search of evidence-based research from seven electronic databases (CINAHL, MEDLINE, ProQuest, Cochrane, JBI, Wiley, and Scopus) was conducted for the period of 2006-2016. Eligible articles were critically reviewed and scored using the Mixed Methods Appraisal Tool (MMAT). Results: Twenty-six articles were reviewed, which included 19 qualitative, five quantitative, and two mixed methods studies. ¿The Experiences¿ are described in three themes: Dominated by fear but feeling a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction; Reality vs Idealism; and Adjusting to nursing life. ¿The Factors¿ are described under three themes: Personal, Professional, and Organizational. Conclusion: The transition experience of new graduate nurses is complex and multidimensional and highlights that ¿it takes a village¿ to grow and support new graduate nurses.
