What’s the purpose of FreshRN.com?
The purpose of FreshRN is to help new graduate nurses in their transition into successful bedside nurses, by providing practical and concise information as well as encouragement and support. When Kati was a brand new nurse, she felt pretty lost and alone. She convinced myself that everyone else was smarter, more prepared and even looked better doing it. However, once she got to know other new grads, she realized they all felt the same – scared, ill-prepared, and overwhelmed.
What is the FreshRN mission, goal and promise to new nurses, nursing students, and experienced nurses alike?
Our mission is to grow new nurses into confident, comfortable and safe care providers.
Our goal is to decrease the amount of time it takes for the new graduate nurse to get to this point.
Our promise is honesty. If a company is mentioned, that means we stand behind them and actually use their product or services. If we discover that any information provided is inaccurate, a correction will be issued.
