Have you dreamed of becoming a Nurse for as long as you remember? Do you think you have a pretty good idea of all a career in Nursing entails? Or, have you just graduated from Nursing School and now find it's nothing you expected? Worse yet, did your classes not prepare you for the magnitude of responsibility you now have? Were you not given clear strategies on how to manage your patients and the extensive workload required during a 12 hour shift? Or, have you been a Nurse for some time, but now feel tired, frustrated, and no longer sure this is the career for you? Do you struggle to get through your shift, going home with fear and worry you missed something in the care of your patients, or perhaps don't feel you gave them your best due to being overwhelmed by multiple conflicting priorities? For some of us, the realities of being a Nurse seldom match either our imagination or our expectations, and all too often our education falls short in providing us with adequate preparation-given its limitations in clinical time, intensity, scope, and supervision. Furthermore, traditional Nursing Theory is often a sea of confusing rhetoric which only minimally translates to any sort of practical application. And, suffice it to say, when you're a New Grad, you need survival skills-plain and simple. You've been taught the Science, in terms of Anatomy and Physiology; you've read about the procedures, and may have even performed a few of them once or twice; but, how do you put it altogether when caring for 5 or 6 or 7 patients, especially after a typically minimal orientation, given the financial constraints in today's world of healthcare, where productivity is everything. Nursing 101 offers the missing link-realistic, time-tested, old-fashioned advice on exactly "How to be a Nurse"-essentially, the much-needed lessons on blending Art with Science. Likewise, it speaks to what it truly means to be a Registered Nurse, in terms of core values, role responsibility, professional accountability, and the achievement of clinical excellence. Finally, it also points out some of the harsh realities of healthcare, and Nursing's place in the grand scheme of things, in terms of effecting positive change. Use it as a primer for Nursing, a basic "how to," as it is loaded with countless practical techniques, simple instructions, and basic knowledge which you rarely get all in one place in Nursing School, and may not assimilate easily on your own, nor from your peers and coworkers. This is the fast track to success. Use it and love what you do
