Reaching your career goals: One step at a time
"To get ahead in nursing today, you'll need more than seniority. You'll most likely need a BSN, continuing education courses in your specialty area, appropriate skills for the job you're seeking, and a competitive edge on the other candidates.But even more important, you'll need a strategy for achieving your goals. As a professional. you need to plan your career. Without a coherent strategy. your "career" may turn out to be little more than a series of jobs-and you may wind up feeling dissatisfied and unfulfilled."--Excerpt from introduction
