Pearls of Wisdom for New RNs

Participants at a UW Continuing Nursing Education conference took the time to write down their nursing pearls of wisdom to advise, inspire and encourage nursing students. This artwork was donated by UWCNE to the UW School of Nursing, where it is displayed in the student lounge. 


"Listen to your patients. Let them tell their stories."

"Take constructive criticism in a positive way. Love your profession!"

"You have been called. Nursing is much more than a job."
