Now That Nursing Orientation Is Over

The Professional Experiences of Jean Mcgrath-Brown, Rn, Ma, Lnha

by Jean McGrath, RN, MA, LNHA

About The Book

Nursing is a noble profession, and nurses everywhere are special people who give of themselves tirelessly. Nurses experience a stark contrast from school to the floors after having learned the art and science of nursing in the classroom. 

Author Jean McGrath-Brown is one of those nurses. In Now that Nursing Orientation is Over, she shares a compilation of experiences she gained in her thirty-eight years in the nursing profession working in several institutions in various positions. Filled with an array of information, McGrath-Brown discusses the many facets of nursing from starting a shift, to the change of shift report, to the admission process, documentation of an emergency, medication errors, family complaints, and the pitfalls. 

Offering firsthand insight into the profession, Now that Nursing Orientation is Over shows what the nurse truly means to patients and how their dedication, love, honesty, and purpose make a difference. McGrath-Brown shows that nursing is all about the giving of oneself without expecting anything in return. It is God’s work that all nurses do to help humanity.

About The Author

Jean McGrath, RN, MA, LNHA, was born in Jamaica and immigrated to the United States in 1967. She was among the last 34 graduates and the only person of color who graduated from St. Mary’s Hospital School of Nursing before it closed its doors in 1971. After graduating on June 13, she married her first love on June 19, 1971, to keep her promise to her then-fiancé of graduating first before marriage.

Jean took the state board examination 3 weeks after graduation and was successful on her first try of the said 2-day examination. On August 30, 1991, a New York state visit to the homecare facility where she was working has been initiated; where she was commended with high regard and received a commendation of “Homecare coordinator, Jean McGrath, was identified as one of whose charts reflected the most complete and thorough follow up of identified problems.” She was also a court-appointed guardian by a New York State Federal Judge to take care of an incapacitated person.

Jean has earned several advanced degrees. She held various nursing positions throughout her career.
