5 Ways to Keep Your Nursing Career Moving Forward

5 Ways to Keep Your Nursing Career Moving Forward

How do you stay on top of your career?

Caroline M.L. Potter | HotJobs

The adage says, “A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush,” and its wisdom is applicable to job seekers. It is usually far easier to find another job if you’re already employed. But how can you ensure that the worst never happens to you — that you’re never left without a job and possibilities for your next opportunity?

Here are five suggestions from career coach Deborah Brown-Volkman:

Keep Thinking Positive

Determined to Be a Nurse?

Want to become a nurse? Get support and meet others who can help you, share the journey, and boost your confidence.

Join NursingLink's Determined to Be a Nurse Group now.

It sounds deceptively simple, but try embracing the power of positive thinking when you’re thinking about your career. “When you tell yourself something bad will happen to your job, something bad will probably happen,” says Brown-Volkman. “If you tell yourself that you are marketable and confident and that you will always be working, your words can make this true.”

Keep Thinking Ahead

If you’re not following trends within your particular industry, you could be caught off guard by a layoff. Is your position or division vulnerable to outsourcing, further automation or elimination? Brown-Volkman says, “If your job is being eliminated or outsourced, you will want to know about it before you are in the room with the human resources person telling you that your job is going away.”

She urges professionals, “Look for trends and then train yourself in growth areas. Having the right skills at the right time ensures that no matter what is happening around you, you will be needed and employable.”
