The New Nurse Survival Guide
How to feel calm, cool, & confident your first year as a Nurse and for all New Grad ICU Nurses…
Are you still feeling anxious pre-shift?
You know it exists—and you don’t know what to do about it….
The New Nurse Jitters…
- Pit stains due to pre-shift anxiety
- A shaky voice as you give report
- 2 minute stairwell crying sesh (Thanks, Brenda! You didn’t need to call me out like that.)
- And general lack of confidence at work
You made it through so much already!
Nursing school, the NCLEX, orientation, & now—Ding Dong!
It’s like Amazon delivered something you didn’t even order! Another obstacle—packaged as that intimidating senior nurse.
Brenda—She gets it! Someone’s life is in her hands now. She is the one responsible. People are looking to her for help & answers.
Enough with the pressure already!
Around 200,000 new nurses enter the workforce in the U.S. each year, according to the National Nurses Association.
Most new nurses haven’t met a Nice Senior Nurse who will show them love, kindness, & all the tricks up their sleeves.
You could hope you end up with a Nice Nurse Preceptor—
A Senior Nurse who supports you, helps you learn from her mistakes, & shares her best nurse tips with you.
After working with her—you know what to say & when to say it, how to look (& feel) confident, & understand common labs & tests.
Feeling confident, less anxious, & more in control of your work is possible… with the right guidance.
If you don’t have a supportive senior nurse at your hospital—what’s the next best option?
Hi, I’m Nurse Meg!
I quit nursing to revolutionize the next generation of nurses! (Translation: to be your Nice Senior Nurse.)
As a nurse with 12+ years in the field, I realize Nurse Bullying is still, sadly, a very real thing. New nurses need a compassionate Senior Nurse to support them in those early years.
Nurses should Teach their young! New Nurses are bright, hopeful, ready-to-learn sponges who should be doused with knowledge & love—Not wrung out & left all alone in the hot Florida sun.
I’ve made a lot of mistakes & learned so many things the hard way. I don’t want you to struggle the same way I did.
Every new nurse deserves a kind-hearted nurse preceptor. And I’m here for You—if you’re in the market for a Nice Senior Nurse.
Ready to learn how you can handle your first year as a nurse—with more confidence (& support) than you’ve ever had?
