    00:01 If you have made it to this point, it's time to say, Congratulations! It's your first day of work.

    00:08 Now is the moment for which you have been preparing for years.

    00:13 The time to make an impact is now.

    00:16 The time to step into your new role is here.

    00:20 The place where you will begin your growth in your healthcare profession is here.

    00:26 Prepare for your first day by clarifying logistics and expectations questions.

    00:31 Where should you park? When should you arrive? What color scrubs should you wear? What is the dress code? When is lunch? Where should you meet for your first day? How long is orientation? These types of questions should be answered before the first day of work.

    00:51 Have a checklist of questions ready to ask your hiring manager or recruiter before your first day.

    00:58 When you come to work, you are likely going to be bombarded with loads of information.

    01:05 Take notes, ask questions, and engage in the onboarding process.

    01:10 Orientation can be overwhelming. Continue to engage.

    01:16 Meet your team members.

    01:18 Asked questions about both the culture and the job.

    01:22 Engage in the orientation.

    01:24 This includes checking in with your manager.

    01:28 Give a quick check in and a quick update on your onboarding.

    01:33 The manager might want to ask follow up questions or might appreciate the quick update and then continue on.

    01:41 Either way, involve them in the process and keep them updated.

    01:46 Lastly, celebrate.

    01:48 This is a major accomplishment.

    01:51 If you do not take the time to celebrate the big moments when they happen, they will simply pass by without notice.

    01:59 So take a moment and celebrate this accomplishment.
