I get so many questions from students that are nearing graduation and wanted to share some of the most recent ones here with you in this Q&A. In this episode, we’ll talk about:

  • How to deal when everyone tells you that you have to start in Med/Surg but you really don’t want to
  • Maximizing learning with limited clinical hours
  • Demystifying what those first crucial few months will be like as a new RN
  • How to manage multiple job offers with professionalism
  • Tips on gaining confidence as a new nurse
  • Advice for how to talk to patients with limited clinical experience
  • Specific areas to focus on for NCLEX studying
  • Choosing between the specialty you love and the general route most nursing schools advise
  • Red flags to look for while interviewing
  • How to keep a positive mindset when so many people are talking negatively about nursing right now
