Finishing school and passing the NCLEX are major steps in your nursing career, but they are just the beginning. Making the transition from student to professional nurse also requires gaining additional knowledge and expertise in clinical skills, critical thinking and professional role assimilation. How you begin your nursing career is an important decision for you and for the safety of your patients.
