Hi, I am writing a blog post and would really appreciate any Nurses who could answer the question: What is the one key piece of advice you would give to new nursing students? If you want to include more than one that would be great. Thanks so much,
1. You will make mistakes.
2. Being informed of these mistakes is not bullying.
3. It will take you time to learn everything and to get things done on time. Experienced nurses will do things faster. If they have a few minutes to sit, it's because they can do things faster, it is not because they are lazy.
4. When in doubt, ask. Better to ask and prevent an error, then not ask and cause harm.
