Work of nursing students and previous experience of patient care can have a positive or negative effect on students’ learning and influence their professional future after entering the clinical arena. The purpose of this qualitative study was to explore the experiences of novice nurses from student work and its impact on their entry into the clinical arena. This qualitative study was performed using Benner descriptive phenomenology in teaching hospitals affiliated to Hormozgan University of Medical Sciences. In depth and semi-structured interviews and presence in the field were used to collect data. The interviews’ texts were transcribed word-by-word to provide the necessary feedback for subsequent interviews and adequacy of the data. Data was analyzed using Benner the matic description method. In this study, 14 (male and female) novice nurses participated, ranging in age from 23-27 years who were working in teaching hospitals. After analyzing the collected information, six main themes were extracted including the development of knowledge and awareness, skills growth, socialization, character growth, stress reduction and slowing down the scientific promotion and 15 sub-themes were extracted. Experience of work while studying can affect individual’s socialization, learning, personality and professional future as well as prepare them to work in the nursing profession in real conditions. Education and health policies need to be amended with awareness of potential effects of the experience of working while studying on the personal and professional growth of students and novice nurses. © Medwell Journals, 2016.
