You’ve Graduated Nursing School, So Now What? EPS 155


Episode 155 of RNFM Radio brings the radio show’s trifecta to the table for an empowering conversation for student nurses, new nurses, and seasoned nurses alike. Elizabeth Scala, Kevin Ross, and Keith Carlson dive deep into how to bring your A-game to your career.

In this wide-ranging conversation, we touch on the notion of informational interviews, and the importance of building a professional network and positive relationships with colleagues. Keith mentioned his recent podcast on the subject of “deep networking”, as well as his recent blog posts on Linked In Pulse, focusing very distinctly on deep networking and the crucial importance of relationships and why they matter to your career.

Other subjects into which we delve in this episode include:

  • Mentoring
  • Doing detective work in terms of learning what the nurse inside of you really wants from life
  • Resumes, Linked In, cover letters, and getting organized
  • Being clear on how to manifest a vision of your ideal nursing position and career
  • Volunteerism
  • Internships

Finally, we encourage our listeners to think outside of the box, or just forget about the box altogether. Who needs a box, anyway?

And last but not least, Elizabeth’s new book, “Your Next Shift“, will be released very soon, so stay tuned for more information about this exciting addition to the amazing content consistently created by our dear Elizabeth!
