What should you expect during your 1st year working as a Nurse?

That first year is a doozy. You find out quickly you don’t know what you think you know. And what you do know you question.

It’s an equally exciting, scary, fun, overwhelming and rewarding experience. You are relearning things you thought you had mastered, and you’re learning an infinite amount of new and complicated things that they just could not cover during Nursing school.

Here are five things that stood out in my mind about that first year:

1. Fear
2. Did I even go to school?
3. Tough resilience
4. Laughter
5. Pride

Nurses: What is your best piece of advice?

untitled-design-5

What has been the best piece of advice you have received as a Nurse? Advice is in not short demand in our line of work. There is always someone more experienced, more skilled or more aware than you. You could say we receive endless nuggets of knowledge during our career.

But…

What piece of advice was that ‘Ah-ha‘ moment for you?

For me:
“Cluster your care”

Yep.

I was ‘that’ Nurse. When I started my career I just couldn’t seem to organize my thoughts and interventions. I would run in and out of single room 10x in a matter of 5 minutes.

Then 10 minutes later… I was back in the room doing something else, forgetting this or forgetting that.

I wasted A LOT of time in those early years.

I didn’t receive the “Cluster your care” golden nugget until I was in year 2.

Ugh.

A nice thought provoking question for you.
