Building and Managing a Career in Nursing: Strategies For Advancing Your Career

This unique new book offers a comprehensive exploration of career management for nurses. The book covers the lifespan of a career in nursing-from discovering and developing a career to changing and reclaiming a career. The author and expert contributors explore each of these stages from theoretical and practical perspectives, with research-based tools and strategies, and real-life examples throughout illustrating how nurses have successfully managed their careers. A separate unit on reclaiming one’s career includes three unique chapters on the stalled career, the impaired career, and overcoming damage and building new credibility. The final two chapters address the importance of building support networks and mentoring. There are also discussions on inquiry letters, resumes, CVs and how to complete a successful interview, with examples of each. Whether you are thinking about a career in nursing, changing careers within nursing, or leaving nursing, this book will be a valuable resource to help you make better, more informed decisions in your career development.
