Transitioning from full time student to full time Nurse

Each year, thousands of new nurses graduate from nursing school and begin their new careers with excitement wrapped up in apprehension. This webinar will help guide you through the transition to help you become the best nurse you can be.

Course Overview

Transitioning from nursing student to a qualified bedside nurse can be daunting. There’s a lot of learning to consolidate as well as new knowledge to take on to ensure that your patients receive the best, most safe care available. Then, to add to this, you have the adjustment to shift work, integrating into your new workplace and more to deal with.

In this webinar, we will discuss how to navigate the important transition from nursing student to bedside nurse. Practical, mental, and clinical considerations will be explored to familiarize newly licensed nurses with the expectations of their new role.
