One of the biggest challenges a nurse manager faces is how to effectively integrate fresh new nurses into their units in a way that maintains their enthusiasm for nursing and builds upon what they learned in new school to make them the best nurses they can be.
Here are two new articles I ran across this week and both deal with this theme of getting the most out of your new nurses.
The first one is from Strategies for Nurse Managers.com and deals with teaching new nurse graduates better time management skills.
The second one is from Health Leader’s Media and focuses on how to onboard your new nurses to improve retention.
What do you think? What are some strategies you use to get the most out of your new nurses?
