I completed my senior practicum on WRS3 (postpartum unit at Women’s Hospital) and I got a position following its completion. I am currently working as a grad nurse right out of school making great money at last!
Karen also offers some insight for current BN students about the transition from student to actively employed Grad Nurse:
I’m so glad I picked a senior placement in a hospital setting that hires their new grads. I have many friends that did their practicum in public health or the OR and it is incredibly tough to get jobs in those areas as new grads. I just wanted to start working right away.
The RRC Nursing Public Relations committee thanks Karen for her submission and wishes her all the best in her journey as a professional nurse!
