New nurse graduates face many challenges when graduating from nursing school. Common challenges are:
- Passing their licensing and certification exams
- Finding a job
- Moving to a new place
- Dealing with a new job orientation.
- Navigating the social structure of a new job
Besides dealing with these issues, many new nurse graduates are still recovering from the stress filled years of nursing school.
One way to cope is to develop a strong support system and arm yourself with information. You probably had a strong support system of family, friends, and fellow nurse graduates that cheered you on while you were in school. Also, you plan to land a job with a awesome new nurse orientation program to help ease your path as a new nurse.
