"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.

  • How to prepare for your job search, interview, and orientation
  • What hospitals are looking for and what you need to bring to the table

  • How to demonstrate leadership to potential employers

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Erika Porter, MSN (Delaware Technical & Community College)
Description: The book describes the process of transitioning from nursing student to entering the workforce for the first time. Topics range from being a new graduate to finding a first job to how to survive as a new nurse. The author also notes that despite the reported nursing shortage, those in the profession are not seeing it, due to nurses coming out of retirement.
Purpose: The purpose is to help new graduate nurses prepare for the work force and maintain a high level of care. It is a stepping stone between graduation and orientation to a facility, giving new graduates information that will prove useful when entering into practice.
Audience: The book is written for nurses who are getting ready to graduate and head out into the workforce.
Features: This is an overview of the transition from nursing school student to nursing school graduate, covering topics such as how to secure that first nursing position, how to prioritize in nursing, and how to apply and be prepared for that first nursing job. The author also explores topics such as priority setting, patient safety, and cultural sensitivity, important topics for new graduates.
Assessment: 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.
