How to Thrive as a Newly Qualified Nurse provides a structured programme of support for nursing students and newly qualified nurses during their first year qualified. Packed with practical examples, tips and advice, and featuring vignettes from recently qualified nurses, this book will help you to:

* Choose your first nursing post and secure the job you really want

* Structure your learning and development in the early stages of your career

* Work in a team, prioritise your care-giving and delegate to others

* Understand safe staffing, patient acuity and dependency tools, care planning, and risk assessment tools

* Learn how to escalate concerns and report incidents.

Here’s what some of our student and NQN reviewers said:

“The writing style and tone of voice is just right, it reads as though I'm having a conversation with a knowledgeable, trusted friend.”

“I noticed that it answered many of the questions I was always embarrassed to ask as I thought I should have already known those things.”

“I have wanted a book that covers the information provided in this book and have been unable to find one. I think this book will be an incredibly useful resource.”

Drawing on her 30 years’ experience as a Registered Nurse and University Lecturer Practitioner, Carol Forde-Johnston has written an accessible and practical book that aims to respond to the questions and concerns that her students and NQNs frequently raise – and to help you thrive as a newly qualified nurse.
