The beginning of a new year assails us once again. Resolving to go on a diet? Thinking about working out more often or finding a better job?
Well, we can help you with the last one and show you how to improve your overall chances of finding and obtaining a better job, if that’s what you want. Here are our top 10 tips for nursing career fitness in 2018:
1 — Set one realistic, achievable career goal for the coming year. Nursing careers are not made in a year, but are made up of a series of singular, doable goals. So pick something you know you can do, and then move on to the next. Perhaps it’s as simple as joining a professional organization you’ve been considering or volunteering for a hospital committee or a shared governance council.
2 — Make sure your resume or CV is updated and ready to be used. Your resume is a chronology of achieved goals, and you should add to it every time you accomplish something new, such as participating in a research endeavor or volunteering for a food drive in your neighborhood. To make it easy to update, keep your resume in an easily accessible place on your computer.
