Survival guides given to student NPs may help ease the transition and make it a successful one. This study evaluates the effectiveness of survival guides in two student NP cohorts in the fall 2015 and fall 2016 semesters. Students completed a brief online survey at graduation, and three and six months after graduation. Results support the inclusion of survival guides in NP curricula as a creative way to positively support the transition from student to new NP and improve preparation for NP practice. © 2020 Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, Inc.
