Newcross Healthcare staff offer advice to graduate nurses

​Finishing university can be uncertain time for any graduate, no matter what course you were on. Fortunately for anyone who studied degree-level nursing, our healthcare staff are on hand to advise with tips they've picked up over the years.

We recently reached out via our social media platforms, asking: "What piece of advice would you give to a Graduate Nurse as they embark on their career journey?"

Here is what they had to say:

  • "Smile, laugh, love every minute of it while you can. Learn, listen, listen some more, think and then do." Emma Thompson

  • "Ask, document, listen." Adrian Rosus

  • "All the ward staff are equally important and deserve your respect." Andrea House

  • "Ask questions. No question is stupid." Louise Helyer-Jackson

  • "Be a team player and never say it isn’t my job, in nursing the patient is everyone’s job." Gail Rhys-Jones

  • "Ask questions. There's a saying that the only stupid question is the one you don't ask." Gail Rhys-Jones

  • "Brace yourselves, it's going to be a tough ride!" Bogdan Micu

Thanks to our staff members for getting involved. We always enjoy hearing from you! If you're looking for a nursing role, take a look at our latest vacancies. We'd love to welcome you into the Newcross community!
