Jannel Gooden, BSN, RN

Pediatric Critical Care RN with 5 years of experience in more than 7 Hospital Networks both in the US & abroad including U.S. News & Report ranked Children’s Hospitals.

Graduated Honors, Cum Laude, from the College of New Rochelle in New Rochelle, NY with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing.

“My passion has always been to work as a Pediatric Nurse. When I started I was so excited, but that excitement quickly turned to fright. I was overwhelmed and unsure of my ability to practice as a nurse. I wanted to give up. Journaling became my outlet. In those moments, I decided I did not want any other New Grad Nurse to doubt their ability. We work too hard to allow doubt to rain on our parade. I knew something needed to be done and I wanted to be that something!

‘Novice is the New Nurse’ became that something. Curating content that allows the new nurse a way to alleviate their anxieties in a practical way has become my goal. I plan to pursue a Master’s degree in Nursing Education to expand on my knowledge and remain an educator that focuses on the needs of the novice nurse.”

“…After our conference call, I took the homework you assigned to me seriously. After I reworked my resume, I reapplied to my dream hospital, shortly after I was invited for an interview and shadow experience. The nurse manager who interviewed me, pulled me aside… she offered me the position right then and there! I look forward to finding more ways to be involved and watching Novice is the new Nurse help other New Grad Nurses achieve success!”
