New Grad Advice-From The Verkinator 👇🏽👇🏽
Shout out to all of the new grads or soon to be new grads 🔊🔈We all learn by repetition and NONE of us will ever be PERFECT. When you graduate, remember to take a deep breath and ask yourself, “is 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.
You can DO this💪🏻💯👌🏼 .
