The New Nurse

The New Nurse

By Meg
We’re changing the culture of nursing. For those that are new and for those ready to do the profession better. We’re a community for those desiring conversation and support around a much bigger aspect of nursing. More than a clinical curriculum we're helping to establish skills and practices for this marathon profession. Whether it's boundaries, self-care, moral injury, or Jesus in the workplace, the new nurse is for those that don't want to burnout but seek balance. We’re working together for a healthy and healing profession.
