Your Last Nursing Class: How to Land Your First Nursing Job

I’m so happy to announce my new book!  I gave it my all in this book… my passion for helping new nurses, my role as a career columnist at, my background,  my blog………a book of Nurse Beth’s practical wisdom, insider tips learned over a long career.

My writing style has been called concise and comprehensive- it’s true- no fluffery but chock-full of practical actionable tips and strategies. I like to give real and actionable content to help you

Your Last nursing class: How to Land your first nursing job

It’s the ultimate guide for landing your dream job

where you’re at. Something you can walk away with and use. When competing for a job, it’s essential that you stand out at every step of the process, and I show you how to be that outstanding applicant.

It’s called “Your Last Nursing Class: How to Land Your First Nursing

Job” because I honestly think these skills should be taught in nursing school ! Really good nurses graduate without knowing how to shine in a competitive market.

  • Is it smart or regrettable to “cold-call” a hiring manager?
  • How do you write a resume to stand out when you have no experience? (examples given)
  • Why your application is being passed over
  • What can you do in first and second semester of nursing school to vastly increase the odds of landing a job when you graduate? (it’s not grades)
  • What are the top job application mistakes nurses make?
  • What do hiring managers really think during an interview? (insider tips from my experience- it’s not what you think)
  • The top interview questions and how to answer them


…and so much more!

I hope you will check it out for yourself or as a gift for a new grad or nursing student.

Best wishes,


Nurse Beth
