This phenomenological study explored the perceptions and experiences of newly graduated OTs working in skilled-nursing facilities. Four themes emerged: evolution of entry-level competence, negotiation of relationships with colleagues, navigation of systems, and transition from idealism to realism. Findings implicate the need for change on multiple professional levels to enable new graduates to successfully transition into practice.
