What is this article about?

When a graduate nurse walks through the doors of your institution, what do they see, feel, hear and experience? What message is delivered by the nature of your corporate culture? Do they feel supported, or do they feel dismissed and disdained? Setting up new nurses for success isn’t rocket science, yet so many healthcare institutions miss the boat. Is your organisation on board with creating an environment that helps novice nurses thrive?

Great resource. Our work place is a high risk area for bullying our graduate nurses, we have already had 5 graduate nurses fired this year alone, with no one ever looking into why, it is always the same NUM who has fired them, management don't see a pattern or question why. I will do my best to look after the graduate nurse's who come to our ward, however once they move to the ward downstairs, there is nothing anyone can do the NUM gets away with bullying time and time again.

Sometimes I find it really hard to make time for my learning, but I was blown away by how easy it is with the Ausmed app. I can fit it in during breaks or on the bus to work.
