We asked Joleen McKee, author of "So you've registered, what now?", to share some key pieces of advice for newly registered nurses.
Her thoughts are below.
- Ask questions
There is no such thing as a stupid question, and you can be certain someone has asked the same question many times before.
- Don’t be afraid to ask for help
If you are struggling, whether that be in understanding something, feeling overwhelmed with your caseload or just feel like you can’t do it- always tell someone and ask for help. Be your own advocate and speak up.
- Never work outside your skill level or competencies
This is where mistakes happen. If you are ever asked to do something you aren’t familiar with or don’t have the skills/knowledge for, then stand up for yourself and your patient and say no, but could you show me so I can learn?
- Remember learning doesn’t end when you become a nurse
Keep learning in and outside of work, give yourself homework at the start to learn more about your chosen area of work.
- The standard you walk past is the standard you accept
Never accept bad care, never stay quiet, always speak up. It is your duty as a nurse to protect the public, but also remember about protecting your colleagues if they are in crisis too.
- Be a team player
Don’t get so focused on your own area that you fail to recognise when your colleagues are in difficulty. Always offer help and assistance if you can, you might need them to help you one day.
- Enjoy this time
Take time to enjoy starting your new job and your new career. Enjoy being new and looking at things with fresh eyes and a fresh perspective. Don’t put too much pressure on yourself that you crumble under the weight of it.
- Don’t ever forget how it felt to be a student or a newly registered nurse
It’s really tough- remember this years from now when you are frustrated with your student or newly registered nurse asking you the same question multiple times.
