5 Ways to Keep Your Nursing Career Moving Forward

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

ounds 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.”

New loans aim to keep nurses in R.I.

Nursing students in Rhode Island have a new option for financing their education — a loan program with zero interest for up to four years, provided they work in Rhode Island.

With Governor Chafee in attendance, the Rhode Island Student Loan Authority on Tuesday announced its new Nursing Reward Program, saying the program was intended to offset a projected nursing shortage by encouraging graduates of the state’s nursing schools to take jobs in Rhode Island.

The loan program will be available for nursing students starting with the 2011-2012 academic year. To participate, the borrower must become a licensed registered nurse and work at least 20 hours a week, with responsibility for direct patient care at a licensed health-care facility in Rhode Island. Nurses who meet those terms will not have to pay interest on loans obtained through this program for up to 48 months.

UM School of Nursing Students Engage Lawmakers on Critical Issues for Nursing

A large group of students, faculty members and administrators from the University of Maryland School of Nursing (UMSON) traveled to Annapolis on Feb. 23 to help lawmakers better understand the role of the nurse and the needs of nursing education.

An underlying theme of the 2011 Advocacy Day was the urgent challenge presented by changes in the delivery of health care. One factor is the steps that Maryland is taking to best put into effect provisions of the Affordable Care Act. Another is a far-reaching report by the Institute of Medicine (IOM) on the future of nursing that, among other things, calls for nurses to be allowed to practice to the scope of their education and training.

School of Nursing Dean Janet D. Allan, PhD, RN, FAAN, led the School’s effort to familiarize lawmakers with the IOM recommendations, which comprise “an action-oriented blueprint for how nurses will be contributing to the health care needs of the nation.”

It’s Academic: Studies Spur Push To BSN-in-10

What do Canada, Sweden, Portugal, Brazil, Iceland, Korea, Greece and the Philippines have in common? They are just some of the countries that require a four-year undergraduate degree to practice as an RN — a move some believe is necessary to create a more-informed, higher-skilled nursing work force. Similar initiatives have been awaiting approval in the New York, New Jersey and Rhode Island legislatures for the past two years. Although they have yet to pass, states across the country are taking notice. With reports of as many as 18 states preparing some type of initiative requiring newly graduated RNs to obtain a BSN in order to maintain their licensure, the idea is gaining momentum.

Doctor of nursing practice responds to national need for advanced education

Based on a decision made by the member schools of the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN), individuals who pursue advanced roles in the nursing industry will have to obtain degrees at both the master’s and doctoral levels beginning in 2015.

This decision to raise the education requirements was due in part to a patient population that is expected to be in need of more complex care and a national shortage of nursing faculty who have obtained a doctorate, according to the AACN.
