Letter 3 of 13: Dear New Nurse...

"We offer a Nurse Residency Program that is designed for the new graduate nurse. It is structured around monthly learning sessions, with a focus on providing an interactive, reflective and enriched learning environment. The program is designed to enhance recruitment/retention of the new graduate nurse and support their transition into a competent practitioner. I am proud to announce that we recently completed year 19 of this program. I asked our participants to write an open letter to a Dear New Nurse. These kind words of support and encouragement are meant for every nurse, in every position, in every stage of their career."
Erin Smital, Nursing Professional Development Educator & Nurse Residency Coordinator, RWHC

    LETTER 3 - Dear New Nurse...

What I want you to know – First off, I’m proud of you for making it through nursing school and NCLEX. The next year at some point you will feel overwhelmed and want to give up. Keep pushing and reach out to Erin. Erin has so much to offer you. You will never know it all and that is perfectly ok. Thank you for giving yourself a career that will help so many, but make sure to take care of yourself. I wish you the best of luck!
