Tips for Your First Year as a Nurse - Associated Content from Yahoo! -

When I first got out of nursing school and was hired as a Medical-Surgical RN in a local hospital I began searching to find tips that might help me make the transition from student nurse to RN. I wanted a list of  specific things I could do to help me learn to care for a greater patient load without an instructor there to back me up. I was disappointed that I could not find a lot of information regarding this crucial transition. I later composed the following list of tips and tidbits. I sincerely hope these prove to be useful to someone else who is in the same shoes I once wore.

1. Be early for work. If you receive report at 7:00 am be there at 6:30am. Most nurses appreciate you relieving them early and are more than happy to give you report. In the two years I worked as a Med-Surg nurse I worked over only twice and that was for a maximum of fifteen minutes only. I found that getting a jump on my day enabled me to start out ahead.
