The purpose of this qualitative research was to explore the experiences of UNIMAS new graduated nurses in term of clinical competency. Purposive sampling was used to recruit seven UNIMAS new graduated nurses to participate in this study. Semistructure, open-ended question guideline was used to guide the face to face interview and online interview using Skype. The data were analyzed manually and the finding was presented in three parts, which are Part I: perception and understanding of new graduated nurses on clinical competency, Part 2: perspective of new graduated nurses towards their clinical competency and Part 3: factors that affected clinical competency of new graduated nurses. The findings indicated that the clinical competency of new graduated nurses is closely related to their transition experience. They are facing a disparity between their perceptions about clinical competency and nursing with the reality in health care delivery. Factors identified are clinical experience, knOWledge and skills, new practice in the workplace, professional socialization, organizational support, communication, reflection, critical thinking and clinical judgment, personal attributes and continuous learning. This insightful feedback helps the nursing educator and employer to identify the challenges faced by new graduated nurses in clinical area. Therefore, suitable supports can be given to enhance the professional development of new graduated nurses.
