"As a nursing faculty member, I found the book informative, interesting, and just a pleasure to read. There is a lot of useful information for the new graduate nurse. 3 Stars."—Doody's Review Service

Packed with real-life examples and indispensable advice from novice nurses and staff development experts, New Nurse’s Survival Guide is the single best book available on how to get the job you want and become the nurse you aspire to be after you graduate from nursing school.

You’ll learn exactly what you must know and do in order to stand out from all the other new graduates and make yourself irresistible to employers — in even the most challenging job market. And you’ll find out what it really takes to thrive, not just survive, during your first year on the job.

  • What hospitals are looking for and what you need to bring to the table
  • How you can demonstrate that you are a nurse that takes the initiative
  • How to demonstrate leadership to potential employers
