Summary, etc.:
"This classic primer takes nurses inside the hospital, the exam room, and the locker room to help you survive and thrive on the job--now updated for the post-pandemic world. 'A must-read guide for new nurses and even those who have been practicing for years'--Echo Heron, R.N., New York Times bestselling author of Intensive Care. In this thorough, readable guide, Donna Cardillo, known as 'The Inspiration Nurse,' pulls back the curtain on what it's really like for first-year nurses, with practical tips for navigating the healthcare system as a new member of the workforce in a world that looks vastly different from ever before. Drawing on her thirty-year nursing career and brand-new insights and perspectives from real healthcare workers, Cardillo shows nurses how to use the principles of self-care, assertiveness, and mindfulness to navigate the interpersonal dynamics that are so key to nursing success and preserve their own longevity in the field. New graduates, second-career nurses, and healthcare workers of all kinds will learn to: find a job that's a perfect fit; navigate clinical settings with confidence; develop positive relationships with physicians, patients, and co-workers; stay upbeat, deal with conflict and adversity, and avoid burnout. With newly updated material on holistic patient care, empowerment, wellness practices, and cultivating resilience, Your First Year as a Nurse is an essential guide for nurses and healthcare workers looking to survive and thrive in today's health-services lands cape" Provided by publisher.
