What advice do you have for graduate nursing students as they get ready to step into the next phase of their nursing career.
Sarah Manacek: Well, I struggle with impostor syndrome. And when I started teaching at a large university, the big, big class sizes were very intimidating. But I found that genuine connection and, honestly, just being me in all that I am was what students and my colleagues responded to the most. So if you feel that imposter syndrome starting to creep in, just remember that you got here because you're you and that is why you'll be successful.
