When I was told to have a transition program online, I was so stressed about how and where to start on the many modules needed to be accomplished in a specific period of weeks. I was even afraid that I may not be able to finish it on due date because it was composed of a series of lessons to study, pre and post tests and real-life scenarios to answer. Through the continuous guidance of a virtual coach, who patiently answered all my queries throughout the program and constantly gave encouraging words, I was able to complete it on time. The program was very informative and interactive. I have learned how to be a better professional nurse in dealing with my superiors, co-workers, clients, and relatives in terms of communication and giving care. In addition, I have not only recapped basic nursing knowledge but foster my skills in clinical practice as well.
I believe that nurses must undergo this transition program to be more efficient and globally competitive in patient care.
Lastly, I would like to thank HCLL for giving me the opportunity to take this transition to practice program because I was able to familiarize with the clinical setting in the US and equipped with the necessary knowledge, values, attitudes, and skills to adapt smoothly in the US Healthcare delivery system.
