WELCOME

to NSNA’s 62nd Annual Convention!

Welcome to Nashville! On behalf of the 2013-2014 NSNA Board of Directors, I am pleased to welcome you to Nashville, Tennessee, for the NSNA 62nd Annual Convention. Attending the Annual Convention is yet another exciting step towards transitioning into the top nurses, leaders, and educators of tomorrow. I applaud your commitment to healthcare, education, and leadership. You will leave Nashville with valuable experience, new friends, and happy memories. This week is yours. Now is the time to learn and network. Take advantage of the plenary sessions, focus sessions and association activity seminars. Visit the Exhibit Hall and bring your résumé to the Career Development Center. This year’s Annual Convention kicks off on Wednesday. The Opening Ceremony features keynote speaker Dr. Gloria Ferraro Donnelly. During the Opening Ceremony, scholarship sponsors and recipients are recognized, along with the Marilyn Bagwell Leadership Grant Award winner and Honorary Membership recipient. After the Opening Ceremony, head over to the annual First Night Party with special guest, the Randy McLellan Band, for some music and fun. On Saturday, the Annual Convention comes to a close with the Closing Ceremony and endnote speaker Virginia Trotter Betts. The Closing Ceremony also features the official introduction of the 2014-15 NSNA Board of Directors and Nominating and Elections Committee. NSNA program award winners and Stellar School Chapter Award winners are also recognized at this time. Finally, I’d like to thank all of our sponsors, whose generosity has provided us with a week’s worth of wonderful activities and opportunities. Jesse Kennedy President NSNA Board of Directors

Safety Tips for Visitors to Nashville

iDream Room - Create Your Future

The Johnson & Johnson Campaign for Nursing’s Future invites you to join fellow students and nurse colleagues in the iDream Room Thursday through Saturday, where you will learn how to develop a job search strategy and gain the tools you need to achieve your career goals! On Thursday and Friday, stop by to hear one of our scheduled lecture series speakers who will talk about various career-focused topics including advanced nursing education, long-term development and non-traditional nursing specialties. Throughout the three-day conference, you can visit our nurse specialty station, “dress for success” station and career development station, where you will receive information and resources to help you achieve your short- and long-term career goals. You can also visit our professional photographer at the Head Shot Studio - immediately take away your complimentary new head shot on a USB drive for easy uploading to your networking page profile! The Campaign will also be taking volunteers to be interviewed for an “iDream” video about students’ dreams for the future and the future of nursing, which will be packaged as a post-event video to be shared by the Campaign and NSNA.

Available for iPhone and Android!)

Security/Lost & Found: Call 5555 Any found items turned in at NSNA Registration will be turned over to the hotel if unclaimed by the end of Convention.

In Your Hotel: • • • •

While in your room, always use deadbolt behind you. Don’t leave your door unlocked or propped open, even if going down the hall for ice. Call the front desk to verify hotel staff, security guards or others requesting entry to your room. Move around hotel in groups and report suspicious behavior to hotel security. Don’t leave valuables out in the open. Use safe if available.

Outside the Convention Center:

• Do not wear your Convention badge. • Do not text and walk. Be aware of your surroundings. • Always travel in groups, avoiding dark and low traffic pedestrian areas. • When traveling by taxi, go in a group, use seat belts, and note taxi number in case of lost items, overcharges and for security reasons. • Don’t display a large amount of cash in public. Plan to use debit/credit cards. Always buy from reputable merchants, not from someone who may be gone tomorrow. • Those of legal drinking age who choose to consume alcohol are urged to do so responsibly. It’s a good idea for at least one person in your group to volunteer to refrain from alcohol consumption, as a guide or“designated walker,”so to speak.

Fire Safety: • • •

Read the emergency instructions on the back of your door and make note of the floor plan, nearest emergency exits, fire extinguisher and fire alarms. In a smoke-filled room, crawl to the nearest exit stairwell. Never take an elevator. If you must remain in your room, wet sheets and towels and place around doors to keep smoke out. Call 911 and stay low, near a window. Make sure fresh air rather than smoke is outside before opening windows or doors. Map photo ©Thinkstock

Make a GREAT Impression! Professional Attire for Interviews and Business Meetings Interviewing for a new nursing position or attending a business meeting (like the NSNA Annual Convention) are great opportunities to display your professionalism --in what you say, how you say it, and how you look! The 2005-06 NSNA Board of Directors developed a Code of Conduct for NSNA Meetings. Item five under Meeting Etiquette states that “Professional business attire or business casual attire is acceptable style of dress for professional meetings.”When interviewing, it is best to dress in professional business attire. If you are unsure about dressing in professional business or business casual attire, then be sure to ask others are attending the same meeting, or others who have attended a previous meeting. The following suggestions are provided as guidelines for professional business/business casual attire. Accessories can add a special touch of color, texture, and pattern to your outfit and are considered a complementary part of both business professional and business casual attire. Also, if you wear fragrance, keeping it light and minimal is recommended in a professional setting to be considerate of others you meet who may be sensitive to chemicals. Remember to shake hands, smile, and introduce yourself to new friends and old acquaintances. Exchange business cards (however, remember to use caution when giving out personal information such as home address, phone number, and e-mail address) and keep a file of contacts for future networking. You will make a lasting first impression on your peers and the many business and nursing professionals you have met. You are on your way to a very successful nursing career!

Professional Business Attire… Women • Suit: or jacket with pants or skirt; or tailored dress (skirt or dress at or below knee) • Blouse • Shoes—comfortable low heeled pumps, loafers or boots • Simple Jewelry

Men • Suit—or jacket and slacks • Shirt— traditional shirt with collar • Tie • Socks (of course) • Dress Shoes & Matching Belt

Business Casual Attire… YES • Shirt with collar or polo style • Slacks • Chinos or Dockers—pressed • Skirts • Blazer or sweater • Loafers or lace-up shoes

NOT considered Business Casual… • T-Shirts • Jeans • Shorts • Mini-skirts • Flip flops, sneakers, or sandals • Athletic wear or leggings • Bare midriffs or low-cut garments

Realities of the Current Job Market ®Thinkstock

The National League for Nursing and the National Student Nurses’ Association are keenly aware of the entry-level job situation for new graduates. We are providing this resource to help you prepare for a very competitive job market. What are the facts? • Although there is a shortage of registered nurses, the economic recession has flooded the RN market with experienced nurses who were retired, planning to retire, or went from part-time to full-time employment. • The need for RNs has declined due to low hospital census (resulting from lower elective surgeries/procedures; high unemployment; and high rate of those without health insurance). • Employers are hiring new graduates with baccalaureate degrees; new grads with associate degrees and diplomas are having more difficulty finding entry-level employment. • Many open RN positions require at least 2 years of experience. • Graduations from nursing school are at an all-time high. • New graduates are expensive to orient and many move on to other employers after only 1-2 years, which adds to the cost of recruiting and orienting new employees. There has been an increase in RN retention due to economic factors—nurses are staying in their current positions. • Once the economy improves and unemployment decreases, the shortage of RNs will become critical.

What can you do? • As a nursing student, work as a certified nursing assistant (CNA) this will get your “foot in the door” and you will gain valuable experience. Be sure to make a good impression and get to know your coworkers and managers. • This is a great time to continue your education—if you have a diploma or associate degree, explore RN to BSN and RN to MSN programs; if you have a BSN, explore masters degree in nursing programs. Many programs are available online. Some of the RN completion programs require students to work while in the program and they receive credit for their clinical hours.

• Before you graduate: Meet with your college/university career services department (submit your name and resume to their data base) at least one semester or quarter prior to graduation and follow-up 2 weeks prior to commencement. Introduce yourself to the alumni chapter members of your educational institution; attend meetings and ask them to help you find your first job. • Always include a cover letter when you submit your resumé and application. When you do get an interview, make a great impression through your professional appearance and interviewing skills. Practice interviewing skills and get an interview coach/mentor. This can be any seasoned nurse who can practice with you. • Network at every opportunity available to you. Get to know the nurses at health care agencies in the area where you want to work. They can let you know when positions for new grads open up on their units. • Smile! When you do land an interview, show that you are excited about the position and express your enthusiasm about working at the agency. • Keep in contact with your mentor. If you don’t have a mentor, seek one out. All of the suggestions addressed here can be executed more easily with the assistance of a mentor. • Take the licensure exam as soon as possible after graduation. Most hiring agencies will not consider your application unless you have passed NCLEX. • Check with the state board of nursing in your state to learn the rules and regulations for RNs to work in other roles (i.e. CNA). Note that if there are Licensed Practical/Vocational Nurse positions available you may want to check with the state board of nursing to see if it is feasible for you to be licensed for this role (until RN positions open up). Remember that if you are licensed as an RN and working in a different role, you will be held to the higher standard (that of an RN)—so you must be careful to practice in the role and job description that you are hired for.


• Join a professional nurses association (i.e., the American Nurses Association and/or state nurses’ association; specialty nursing organizations) and network with members—let them know you are seeking employment. Finding a job may rely on who knows you and what you can do, more than anything else. • Be open and flexible—you may not get the position you want, but finding an entry-level position that will give you experience and professional-growth opportunities as well as health insurance benefits, is essential. (Note that NSNA’s health insurance benefit can be extended for 9 months after graduation as long as you are enrolled in the insurance plan as a student.) • Look outside of the acute-care setting for entry-level positions such as long-term care; rehabilitation setting; community health; camp and school nursing; veteran administration hospitals and facilities; local and state departments of health; agency work; wellness work sites or employee or college/university health center. • Even if a residency or internship is not in your specialty interest area and pays less than other positions, still consider taking the position if it is offered to you. Being employed as a nurse is your highest priority. Note that some residency and internship programs are very competitive. Many of these programs work with specific schools (i.e., schools that do clinical rotations at their facility) and these students receive priority placement (if positions remain available, then they look at other new grads). • Consider career enhancing opportunities to gain clinical experience (i.e., mission work; international opportunities; assisting your mentor with research). • Cultivate relationships and stay connected to every nurse and healthcare worker that you know and keep them up-to-date about your job search. Networking is the key to awareness of employment opportunities. • Stay current through continuing education and consider taking the time to complete certification opportunities. • If you are not tied to your community, move to where the jobs are. If you are tied to your community, consider asking your family to help you make this next step of relocating temporarily or working away from home and returning at designated times. Use family and friends in other areas of your town, city or state as possible contacts for help in arranging a new temporary or permanent residence to acquire jobs where there is a greater need for new graduates.

• Routinely check websites, newspapers, the NSNA Career Center, and nursing publications for job availability. Check the hospital or agency web sites daily as this is where job openings are often first announced. • Make sure that your resumé truly reflects your education, skills and experience. If you are an active NSNA or community leader, this is important to include. Review your resumé and any job applications with your mentor. • Purchase an “interview business suit and shoes” and be sure to look professional when you land an interview. • Be sure that you know the terms of student loans. Check to see if there is any way you can delay your student loan repayment until you are employed. Also check into loan forgiveness programs. • Be very aware of the early signs of burnout and be sure to address them. Develop good relationships with your nurse manager and co-workers and always ask for assistance when you need it. • Let your school of nursing know about the hiring situation in your area so that they can use this data to strategically plan for the number of enrollments. Do not give up nursing! We know that there is a nursing shortage looming and this is a temporary situation. Keep your nursing passion alive and take every opportunity to progress in your nursing education and develop your professional identity.
