Endless Career Alternatives for Nurses
“There are exactly as many special occasions in life as we choose to celebrate” – Richard Brault
Today is National School Nurses Day. More than 73,000 school nurses in the United States make a difference in the lives of children every day. This may come as a surprise, but back when I left the corporate world, I became a School Nurse for several months. A local Kindergarten through 8th Grade school asked if I could help them out since their school nurse was unable to complete the year. It was one of my most treasured roles in nursing.
Just like any job, it had its paperwork and regulations but these aspects were completely overshadowed by the goodness and kindness displayed by the many students that came to my office. I learned so much from those children and I have written more than a few stories about their sweetness, antics and heart felt empathy for their friends.
There are endless career alternatives for nurses. No limit to how nurses are able to use their education and experience. From clinical nursing to advanced practice, educational settings to corporate settings, traditional to non-traditional workplaces; endless options for today’s nurse.
I celebrate Nurses Week more as each year passes. I am more grateful for my fellow nurse colleagues and for our profession. In my role as the President of the National Nurses in Business Association I have the privilege to work with some of the most amazing nurse business owners on the planet. I get to hear the excitement of nurses aspiring to become nurse entrepreneurs. I love connecting nurses with individuals that truly care and want them to succeed. I hope you celebrated being a nurse this week and if you didn’t; make plans to join us this October in Las Vegas.
