You published a work entitled “Due Process Rights of Nursing Students in Cases of Misconduct” in the Journal of Nursing Education. This seems like a fantastic accomplishment. How was this received in the literary nursing community? What made you decide to cover the subject?

As a nursing administrator, I frequently deal with issues and policies pertaining to nursing students. The article was written to assist faculty in understanding students’ rights in cases of misconduct and the importance of adhering to well-defined policies that ensure due process for all students.

The Actual Work

What is a typical day in the life of a nurse of your specialty?

As an Assistant Professor in nursing education, a typical day may involve classroom teaching, supervision of nursing students in the clinical settings, and committee meetings. As Assistant Dean, I also meet with faculty and students as needs and/or problems arise.

Who are some of the most important figures in the field of Nursing today?

I consider the presidents of two nursing organizations to be important leaders in nursing. Barbara Blakeney is the president of the American Nurses Association, and May Wykle is the president of Sigma Theta Tau, the national nursing honor society. Both organizations advocate for the profession of nursing and foster education, leadership and research.

Job Information and Advice

What are the hottest nursing specialties right now? Which specialties are declining in demand? Where do your specialties stand in regards to demand?

Due to the nursing shortage, all areas of nursing are currently in demand. As patient days in the hospital continue to decrease, there are increased opportunities for nurses to work in various positions in community settings.

What’s the pay scale for someone just starting a career in nursing? How about for those at the senior level?

The starting salary for new graduate nurses with a baccalaureate degree range from 35,000-40,000, depending on the geographical location and work setting. Salaries increase with continued education, experience, and credentials.

Do you have any advice regarding how graduating students can land that first great job?

Because nurses are in great demand, most nursing graduates are able to secure employment either before or shortly following graduation. Many graduates are able to choose the areas in which they would like to work.

How is the job market right now? How do you think it will be in the next 5-10 years?

Nurses are currently in great demand, and the trend is expected to continue for at least the next ten years. This is a great time for students to complete their education and enter the field of nursing!
