  • 1.
  • 2. The future of nursing is in new graduate nurses...
    And we’re losing them.
    The following module is intended to increase awareness about the impact of horizontal violence toward new graduate nurses.
  • 3. Up to 60% of new nurse graduates leave their first nursing position within the first year
    50% of that number
    leave the profession
    entirely
  • 4. Nurses are notorious for their poor treatment of newcomers, and it goes deeper than simple hazing or initiation.
    The quotations throughout this module come from actual new graduate nurses. Names have been changed to protect privacy.
  • 5.
  • 6. I know that I know lots of things, but I don’t know where we keep tape or how to page the right doctor or .. hundreds of other things and somedays I come home so aware of my shortcomings and completely lacking confidence in my ability to be a competent nurse. - Linz

  • 7. The first months of practice can be chaotic, painful, and traumatic—fostering feelings of isolation, vulnerability, and uncertainty. These feelings can result in low self-esteem, lack of self-confidence, and a sense of failure in new graduates
  • 8. e
    It’s like walking into a very important game where the stakes are really high, and the people you are playing with won’t let you see the rule book . . .
    I hadn’t realized nursing was so competitive. Lots of poker faces.

    It was the looks the preceptor gave me. . . like I was stupid. . .
    In my whole three months of orientation, I can’t think of a single time anyone ever complimented me.
