The demands of a new job can be overwhelming. Stress, long hours and a busy schedule can have you feeling the pressure of trying to find a balance that fits you. This can be especially true for higher-paying professional jobs in the medical field. As a new nurse practitioner, here are some tips to conquer the on-the-job learning process.
We can help you conquer the first step in finding an employer that suits your needs!
Choose Your Employer Wisely
It’s important to find an employer who understands and fosters your growth, as he/she will affect your future career and outlook. During your interview, it is important to be up-front and honest in what you’re looking for.
As a first year nurse practitioner, you might not feel confident about your abilities, but your superior work ethic can shine through. By demonstrating your determination and hard work, you’ll be able to increase your own self-assurance that will not go unnoticed.
Don’t be afraid to ask questions! It’s easy to get complacent with a constant routine, but this will only stunt your growth professionally. Challenge yourself with new patients and procedures you aren’t comfortable performing with to increase your confidence and experience all around.
Have Realistic Expectations
Learning to balance work expectations and patients in the constant evolving medical field is a tough job. Don’t go in as a superhero because burning out is a strong possibility. Go in determined and ready to work but expect some learning bumps on the way. Remember, these bumps will only make you stronger mentally and professionally.
