Secrets for Success in Nursing Career
What does it take to achieve a flourishing nursing career? Unfortunately, there is not one magic recipe or express ticket to success ---- but being aware of certain life principles will surely make success within your reach. And to make it more simple and memorable, remember the letters in the word SUCCESS.
S. Seek your passion. Steve Jobs once said, “You’ve got to find what you love! Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life.” So think, do you want to be a nurse educator? A case manager? An ICU nurse? Find your purpose and take advantage of the countless opportunities in the field of nursing.
U. Use your talent. Come out of your shell and shine brightly. Modesty is admirable but sometimes, “Learn how to BLOW YOUR OWN HORN!” Let the world know what you are capable of and make your mark in the nursing profession.
C. Care for others. Give back. Strive to make a difference - every day, every time because you can never go wrong with kindness. Believe me.
C. Create something new. Don’t give up on something you did not even try. Take the risk. Be an inventor. Be an innovator. Leave a lasting legacy for future nurses to apply and appreciate.
E. Educate yourself --- for life ---! Period.
S. Surround yourself with friends and mentors who will inspire and bring out the best in you. Stay away from negative people. Fire and Hire. You are the CEO of your life.
S. --- Spoil yourself. You CANNOT take care of others if you CANNOT take care of your own self. Manage stress. Smile. Exercise. Travel.
Hope this message will guide you in pursuing life success!
