But this transition to professional practice—fraught with challenges, anxiety, triumphs, and tears—does not have to be so difficult.

She offers sound advice regarding the most current issues facing new nurses and practical strategies for obtaining a job of one’s choice, describes steps to take well before graduation to ensure a smooth transition to professional practice, and addresses the various indicators of academic achievement that are required for employment at some nursing facilities.
