Performance evaluation is a continuous process in assessing the employee’s contribution to the organization. The aim of performance evaluation is to achieve an equitable capacity of the employee’s contribution to the workplace. In nursing, the evaluation performance encompasses cognitive skills; affective and psychomotor domains. The aim of this study was to evaluate the new nurse graduates' performance who had been trained within an environment of ‘everything is new to everyone’ in one of the teaching hospitals. A comparative descriptive study was conducted with 113 staff nurses as after 2 years of graduation. Work performance domains evaluated are; punctuality, physical appearance, attitude and commitment to work, service excellence, positive relationship, communication skills, and leadership. Results had shown 76.02% of the new nurse graduates’ performance was excellent as evaluated by the 1st evaluators. Similar results were obtained from the overall evaluation of the 2nd evaluators. However, in some aspect of the overall evaluations, there was an inconsistency that contradicts the evaluation of both evaluators. A system will run accordingly if it is well communicated and had mutual consensus between evaluators who regard performance evaluation is rather a continuous process even in a difficult environment when everything is new to everyone.
