2023 Graduate Nurse Q and A LIVE – Grad Success Series

Join me in this exciting episode where I went live on Instagram and discussed valuable insights about graduate nursing programs, nursing careers, and life. I answered several questions from the audience, including whether entry-level jobs are worth considering instead of graduate nursing programs, how to manage nervousness and overwhelm during placement weeks, and dealing with feeling unprepared for the job.

In addition, I touched on imposter syndrome, self-doubt, and the importance of balancing nursing relationships, life, and career during the graduate year.
