My First Week as a New Graduate Nurse


I finally did it. I graduated, landed a job, and passed NCLEX. It has been a whirlwind blur for the past several months during this process so I thought it would be helpful to share the experience with others. That way you know what to expect upon graduating from nursing school. Remember the Seven P's from the Marine Corps: "Proper planning and preparation prevents {piss} poor performance." My family is full of rough and gruff straight shooters that tell it like it is. Guess you could say the apple doesn't fall too far from the tree. So let me tell you about my experience so you know what to expect!
