Conclusion: The participants experienced both a personal inner transition and a role transition that were either supported or opposed. Vague or nonexistent definitions and concepts, insufficient knowledge, insufficient support and undefined roles hindered participants' role transition. Two main strategies should be employed. The first is the realisation of more strategic leadership and support from organisations on all management levels, including nursing organisations/unions, while the second is to more realistically prepare future advanced practice nurses for the challenges they will face, through mentorship programmes and continuous further training.
