Throughout your nursing career, it is highly likely that you will transition to a new nursing role at least once.  You may change specialties, get promoted, change your work setting, or decide to leave full-time clinical nursing to teach in a school of nursing.

All of these exciting transitions are a sign of success in your career. But do you know how to make the best of these transitions which can be positive but also challenging, daunting and a little bit scary?

This live and interactive webinar will provide practical tools that you can apply immediately to your real-world transition.  After participating in this webinar, you will be able to:

  • Manage your transition like a pro:  Making connections and recognizing opportunities
  • Implement critical time management techniques you never knew and why this matters in the transition period
  • Control distractions and interruptions:  Manage emails, welcome "committees" and other things that can distract you and get you off to a rough start
  • Polish your communication skills to smooth your transition into a new position
  • Effectively deal with lack of acceptance, inclusion and conflict:  Establishing civility and collaboration in your new role
  • Successfully manage stress during your transition to a new role

Attendance is FREE for Members and Non-Members

Program content will help you make the best of your transition and give you a solid foundation for ongoing success in your new role.
