New Grad Advice-From The Verkinator πŸ‘‡πŸ½πŸ‘‡πŸ½

Shout out to all of the new grads or soon to be new grads πŸ”ŠπŸ”ˆWe all learn by repetition and NONE of us will ever be PERFECT. When you graduate, remember to take a deep breath and ask yourself, β€œis anyone dying?” If so, move quickly and ask for help from your senior nurses and charge. If not, still TAKE A DEEP BREATH and ask for help from your senior nurses or charge. None of us learned to run before we crawled. We all had to go through the emotional roller coaster of that 1st year of nursing. We have all cried on the way home from our 12.5-13 hour night shifts mentally, emotionally and physically exhausted. Sometimes certain cases or patients stick w/us, and you NEVER forget that really valiant resuscitation of the 16 y/o GSW or the peds trauma that you couldn’t save. Know that you are NEVER alone. You don’t wak your nursing journey alone because there are ppl like me and many others that are here to educate, support and mentor you. Yes, there are a LOT OF NEGATIVE NANCIES out there that can be bullies, passive aggressive, narcissistic, and have SUPER inflated egos but the majority of us care…A LOT!!! When you are feeling defeated in your first year, seek US out. Seek one of the good guys/gals, because we will always support, nurture and mentor our younger RN’s. Never walk in your nursing journey alone, I assure you we have ALL felt defeated at one time or another. You didn’t come this far to fail. Just remember take care of yourself first, be patient with yourself and that every shift you are learning.

About the Author
I am an experienced trauma nurse who has seen a lot of super tragic and gnarly things. On the flip side, I’ve have seen and done a lot of amazing things in my 20 years of nursing as well. I’ve saved lives for a living and I have had the privilege and the honor of holding patients hands as they take their last breath. I have seen SO many patients and their loved ones in their most fragile moments. I am proud of my profession, and for the fact that I have fought so valiantly to be here. Sometimes nurses get burnt out, but I have been blessed to be at the bedside all of my career. I have earned multiple degrees and certifications in nursing. I am the nurse you want at your bedside when you’re critically injured and dying. I put my blood, sweat and tears into being clinically astute & relevant. This blog is to help new nurses, nursing students, paramedics, experienced nurses, or whomever comes across my blogs path and think it is intriguing, educational or inspiring to them. In this career, we are all here to share and help one another grow. I believe in building others up, so they can reach the next level, whatever their goal may be. Carpe Diem & ENJOY!
