A Real-World Guide to Surviving Nursing Orientation
by Rachel Edmondson, BHA, BSN, RN-BC
You've passed your NCELX, survived your first interview, and just landed your first nursing job! Now what? This new grad RN survival guide was written to help you navigate your first nursing orientation. From what to expect on your first day to surviving your first code blue, WWFD aims to help you navigate the reality shock as you transition from nursing student to bedside RN.
Among other things, you will find advice on how to give an effective hand-off report, cluster your care, efficiently complete up to five patient assessments in less than three hours, and learn how to page a physician like a BOSS.
Using humor and practical real-world nursing experience, this short and sweet book aims to take you from new nurse to Florence Nightingale status in less than three months!
