RealityRN.com: just right for students and new nurses

I wish there was something like RealityRN.com available back when I was a new nurse. In addition to reading the site’s great articles on career management, participants can post their own stories or questions about nursing and get feedback from one another in a safe, friendly environment. There are also useful videos and humorous postings. (The very good video series on how to deal with preceptors would have helped me back in 1996. I just recommended them to a friend of mine who was fired from her first nursing position due to a conflict with a preceptor.) While the site is geared toward new nurses and students, experienced nurses will find it interesting too and can use it as a venue to mentor novices who are struggling with their new roles.
