The Art of Nursing
Be Your Authentic Self: 3 Reasons Why Nurses Must Comply #nursingfromwithin

No two people on this planet are exactly alike. Even twins. Yes, there is that ‘twin thing’ that happens where you can feel what the other twin is thinking. You get that ‘intuitive hit’ that your twin is experiencing something and you can feel it too. (I…

Ebola Facts: How Many Health Care Workers Have Contracted ‪#‎Ebola‬?:"More than 400 health care workers in West Africa have been infected with Ebola during the current outbreak, and 233 have died as of Oct. 8. The World Health Organization said that the high rates of infection among medical workers could be attributed to shortages or improper use of protective equipment; not enough medical personnel; and long working hours in isolation wards."

According to the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) Guide to Graduate Nursing Programs, “the national movement toward healthcare reform is ushering in new models of care delivery that will place nurses in the driver’s seat”. This is great news for those of you looking to further your nursing education and practice! The projections for job growth in nursing are excellent, and, considering the fact that the current demand for Master’s prepared nurses far outweighs the supply, you are making a wise decision by pursuing your Master’s Degree in Nursing.

We at BestNursingDegree.com have taken the time to compile a list of every accredited MSN degree program in the United States, in order to facilitate your search for a school that will meet your needs. We believe that by reducing the amount of time it takes you to find a graduate nursing program, we are, in some small way, doing our part to advance the profession of nursing, and helping to close the gap between the supply and demand for Master’s prepared nurses.

Professional Nursing Tips Part 3: How to Make Nursing a Life Long Career

We are proud to share the third and final installment of valuable tips for nursing success from Jerome Stone RN, MA.
#4 Re-Connect With Compassion
Regardless of how long you’ve been in nursing, one of the most important tips for staying vital and alive within your profession is to remember why you became a nurse in the first place. Nurture that impulse. Bring yourself back to the root of why you chose this profession.
Many of us burn out because we've lost touch with the initial spark of compassion that made us go into nursing. At this point, your career can seem like ‘just a job’ and you may fail to remember the magic that arises from bringing basic compassion to the bedside

Professional Nursing Tips Part 2: How to Make Nursing a Life Long Career  by +Jerome Stone 

#2 Learn From Your Journey

While you’re on your path toward your goal, remember to remain open to the experiences that will provide enrichment to your knowledge and set you apart from others. For example, you may plan on becoming a Nurse Practitioner (NP) in Palliative Care, with either an MSN or DNP for your practicing degree. Ask yourself, “How can I gain useful information along the way, in whatever nursing setting I find myself in, that can help me to become well-rounded as an NP?”

Maybe you have decided that clinical research is what makes you light up and you’re going to work toward that one goal. Great! But remember that when doing clinical research, you’ll likely be working with study participants, also known as “patients.” You’ll be a more proficient and compassionate nurse researcher if you've spent time working with patients, getting to know how to create lasting rapport with study participants. The experiences you gain on your nursing journey will ultimately influence your long term nursing success.

If you, like many other nurses, have not strictly charted your professional course, keep in mind that you will likely be able to find your destination along the way. At present, I work in Oncology Nursing and love working with this population. Many years ago, I accepted a position in Pain Management Nursing, never thinking I might someday be interested in Oncology.

I have found that because of my expertise in pain management, I've become more valuable as an Oncology Nurse than someone who may have known they were bound for Oncology straight out of nursing school. The diversity of knowledge and experiences I've had during my nursing career have made me a valuable leader in my field.
Whether you have your mind set on your professional end goals, or whether you are learning what you love along the way, enjoy the journey. Take the valuable lessons you learn along the way and apply them to your future goals. The more varied experiences and knowledge you accumulate on your nursing journey, the more prepared you will be to excel at what you do.
