Featured Author: Caroline Porter Thomas

  Caroline Porter Thomas is the founder of EmpoweRN inc. and the author of “How to Succeed in Nursing School: Before, During and After” and “New Nurse?  How to Get, Keep and LOVE Your First Job!” 

Both of which offer a revolutionary approach to achieving success in nursing school and on the nursing job.  Caroline graduated from Fayetteville State University, in May 2008, with a bachelor’s degree in nursing.  Currently, she works as a Registered Nurse in Miami FL, with Parallon Workforce Management Solutions.  Which offers Per Diem supplemental staffing to Local Hospitals.

The motivation for her first book was this:  Ms. Porter Thomas passed the NCLEX examination on her first attempt; however, her nursing school had an overall 42% first time pass rate in 2008.  Since becoming aware of the fact that many of her classmates struggled through nursing school, her mission has been to identify the traits and characteristics of successful nursing students so that she can pass them on. Furthermore, Caroline also became aware of the coming nursing shortage which she believes is not due to a lack of interest in the profession, but due to the demanding nursing education curriculum that can be intimidating to aspiring nurses and difficult for many current students to complete.  Subsequently, she decided to write a book to help all those interested in pursuing a career in nursing.

In her book, Caroline has included specific strategies that she created and used to cultivate motivation and study effectively. When Caroline was in nursing school, there were so many times she said to herself, “I wish I knew this before,” or, “How on earth do I study for these exams!”  After completing nursing school with honors, and passing the NCLEX on the first attempt, she realized she had a lot to offer to those who are just beginning their journey.

In addition to providing her own insight, Ms. Porter Thomas interviewed 25 different nursing professors nationwide on what the habits of successful nursing students are.  These instructors were from community colleges, universities, and even from prestigious schools of nursing like Yale, and Johns Hopkins.  This book also includes positive testimonials from students, recent nursing graduates, and even nurses who have been in the profession for over 30 years.  This material is intended to provide additional motivation to help students in overcoming the rigors of nursing education.

In 2013, Caroline fulfilled yet another dream to help those beginning their journey into the nursing profession.  After being a new graduate herself then training several new graduates she realized that if you knew what to expect on the job, you would be much better off.  In her new book:  New Nurse? How to Get, Keep and LOVE Your First Job, she offer tips on:  How to Ace the Interview, How to prepare for your first job, How to approach doctors, How to manage high nurse to patient ratios, what to do if you make a mistake, how to love your first job and much more!
