How to Score in Your Nursing Career
Laura Wisniewski RN, BS, CIC
Professional certifications are highly respected in the nursing profession. They represent hours of dedication and commitment. Certifications are a method of validating your clinical expertise. Request information from nursing associations about the certification process. Obtaining an advanced degree is one of your most expensive career strategies. It will require significant planning and investment of time. However, advanced degrees are universally recognized, never expire, and once achieved can not be taken away.
As with any worthwhile goal, building a winning career will take time and effort to accomplish. Champions never lose sight of what they want or how to get there. May the best nurses win!
