Nursing as a Second Career

Nursing as a Second Career

Laura Wisniewski RN, BS, CIC

How nurses can help

The following suggestions will help attract others to nursing. Speak positively about the nursing profession. Tell your friends and family about the work you do as a nurse. Encourage those expressing an interest in becoming a nurse. Share information about resources in your community. Treat all new nurses, including second career nurses with respect. Become a mentor.

Finding solutions to the nursing shortage requires the active involvement of all nurses. Those considering nursing as a profession, watch as we go about our daily work. They listen to what we say and do. We send powerful messages with our actions and attitudes. What message are you sending?
