Abstract

Highlights:

  • The situational relevance of roles influenced why study participants chose to transition from acute to primary health care (PHC) employment.
  • Nurses working in acute care nursing had little understanding of PHC nursing unless they had previous exposure to PHC models of care.
  • Findings from the study provide guidance to employers seeking to recruit acute care nurses.
