This study was designed to answer the research question: Can the Canterbury Dedicated Education Unit model of clinical teaching and learning support graduate registered nurses in their first year of practice? A descriptive exploratory case study approach was utilised. Data were gathered via three focus groups with a total of eleven participants. Thematic analysis was undertaken to identify patterned meaning across the dataset. Two primary themes evident were; support, and recruitment and retention. The main theme of support had five associated subthemes: peer support, organisational support, liaison nurse support, team support for the graduate registered nurses and team support for the staff. An unexpected finding was the positive contribution of the Nurse Entry to Practice Programme Liaison Nurse as a conflict broker who was able to mitigate the escalation of concerns. Another unexpected finding was the positive contribution of the use of Canterbury Dedicated Education Unit of clinical teaching and learning to the recruitment and retention of graduate registered nurses. It is clear the Canterbury Dedicated Education Unit model of clinical teaching and learning provides a significant amount of support to the graduate registered nurses because of the structure of the model.
