For new graduate RNs (& those who help them) entering the workforce, Dr. Pat Benner PhD RN FAAN, who wrote Novice to Expert, has some great, very practical advice: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yxsBVPxS_zg (1:56) (hint: Remember the only behavior you can control is your own!)
And…it’s pretty good advice for any who assume a new job, too!
For More Information: If you want to know what it feels like sometimes to be a new grad RN, check out the 2 main themes and the subthemes voiced by new graduates in the free full-text: Hussein et al., (2017). New graduate nurses‘ experiences in a clinical specialty: a follow up study of newcomer perceptions of transitional support. BMC Nursing, 16(42). doi: 10.1186/s12912-017-0236-0. eCollection 2017.
Critical Thinking: Whether or not you are a new grad, did you have experiences similar to those in Hussein’s study? Can you use Benner’s suggestions to deal with the issues?
