Want to get rid of the guess-work of applying and interviewing for your first nursing job?
For graduating nursing students who want to demystify the hiring process, hear what hospital nurse managers really think, and decrease their stress as much as possible so they can land the job with confidence
From Kati Kleber MSN RN CCRN-K
Nurse Educator, American Nurses Association published author, and national speaker
You’re staying up late every night studying... waking up early every morning for class or clinical.
All you care about is passing the next exam. You have the looming fear of the NCLEX® constantly on your mind.
Then one day, you professor suggests everyone should start getting their resume together.
“Resume!?" you think.
"I go to school full time. I was a lifeguard every summer. I don’t have anything to put on a resume!”
Great, another thing to do. And you don’t even know where to start.
You’re terrified of the the thought of a interview.
You don't know what to do so say… what’s reasonable, what’s unreasonable… what they expect you know… what looks terrible and what really wow’s them…
So, you run a few Google searches but only get some blog posts with practice questions… but you’re having trouble finding anything that really walks you through the entire process.
What if you could hear directly from a nursing leader and nurse educator who have interviewed hundreds of applicants?
What if you could hear what they really think?
What if you knew exactly what to expect, how to navigate the interview with confidence and poise while showcasing your authentic skills, and how to structure your resume?
What if you could watch a video example of a terrible, so-so, and an amazing interview?
Don't make this common nursing student mistake
Look, so many new grad nurses work under the assumption that the hospitals who hire them expect them to walk onto the nursing unit with the knowledge and confidence of an experienced nurse.
After all, you did just graduate right?
You just learned how to do all of this, didn’t you?
Let’s dispel that myth right here, right now: Hiring manager and nurse leaders know newly licensed nurses are not ready to fly solo upon graduation. They don’t expect you to simply get a tour around the unit and know how to handle a full patient load.
Forget trying to fake it til you make it. They see right through that.
So… if you don’t have any nursing experience, haven’t even graduated from nursing school, and don’t even have a license yet - what do you talk about in an interview?
What do you even put on a resume in the first place?
How do you even begin to figure this all out… especially when you’re so busy with trying to get through school in the first place?

Meet Your Instructors
Try the FreshRN® Nurse Resumes & Interviews Course for an entire 30-days, risk free.
If you don’t love this course, I insist you get 100% of your money back. Let me tell you why.
Amber and I put our heads together and thought of everything we thought graduating nursing students must know to land their first job out of school. While I’ve interviewed some, Amber has interviewed hundreds (if not over 1K).
That’s a ton of interviews.
That’s a ton of resumes.
Since graduating nursing school in 2010, while I’ve conducted some interviews myself, I have sat in on many peer interviews. I’ve heard the immediate feedback from fellow nurses about candidates. I’ve had my own impressions and thoughts and have heard the honest and uncensored thoughts of other professional nurses as they evaluate candidates.
Amber and I have both also been through the process ourselves. We know the unique thoughts and feelings of the exhausted and overwhelmed nursing student who just wants to pass boards and get a job.
This isn’t theoretical or general good ideas to consider. This course is jam-packed with real, actionable, direct, and practical steps you can take to get that job and move on with your semester.
Needless to say, we’re very confident in this course and the value it provides to any graduating nursing student.
My simple offer is this: If you don’t LOVE this course, I’ll give you 100% of your money back with no questions as long as you request it within 30 days.
You can go through the entire course and if it’s not translating to a deeper understanding of what you need to do to set yourself up for success and land that first nursing job - I will absolutely give you your money back.
All you need to do is send one email (listed in the course) and that’s it. No phone call. No awkward conversation requiring you to explain anything. No questions asked. One email.
