From new grad to seasoned nurse

From new grad to seasoned nurse

The Nursing Graduate Internship is a yearlong program that supports the transition of new graduate nurses as they journey from classroom theory to real-life bedside nursing. Together, they’ve studied nursing skills, effective communication, critical thinking—even financial planning and stress management—and are well on their way to becoming seasoned AAMC nurses.

Congratulations to our February 2010 cohort! As of this month, they have successfully completed their first year as nurses at AAMC. A graduation celebration was held on February 15 to acknowledge this achievement.

CNO, Sherry B. Perkins, PhD, RN noted how these nurses have already begun to “bloom where they were planted,” and shared encouraging words from each nurse’s unit. It was clear that many of these new grads have already made a huge impact on their patients, units, and coworkers.

    This is such a wonderful event. It really closes a chapter for our new grads who are now strong members of our teams, gaining experience on a daily basis. I am so proud of Kate and Etta on MSU, Tiffany on SCU. They all have a huge amount of love, compassion, caring and smarts to contribute to our patients, our families and our units.
