Happy Nurses Week… in the Year of the Nurse 2020! Maybe you are on the frontlines taking care of Covid-19 patients, or maybe you are taking care of the other patients who are urgently hospitalized such as having a baby, a sick child, or someone with a traumatic injury. Nurses are found everywhere taking care of those in need from pre-birth to the elderly and everyone in-between. Maybe you are a nurse supporting the nurses at the frontlines and patients, such as case managers, clinical nurse specialists or other advanced practice nurses. Maybe you are a nurse leader helping to insure that the nurses have a supportive and safe environment in need to care for others, including themselves and their team. Maybe you are a morale booster, a nurse leader, educator, mental health nurse, nurse researcher, or a patient advocate. Nurses wear many hats and often at the same time. Whatever type of nurse you are, all nurses are needed… You are important! Thank you for all you do! Happy Nurses Week!
Thinking about a taking a new direction in your career? Something you might want to consider in staying with a current employer or your next employer is; how much value is placed in retaining their experienced employees or does there appear to be a constant churn with no thought to training costs? Will your next employer be a stepping stone as you move forward to reach your goals? If so, then it may not be as big a consideration. Or are you planning to stay long-term? Then this is much more important. Just some considerations that may not be considered until it’s too late. Have a good weekend.
