Why is it important for nurses to have a chance to advance their careers if they want to? Although it’s perfectly acceptable for an RN to stay working as an RN throughout their entire career, and although many do just that, other nurses want to progress, and they are keen to learn what they need to learn in order to reach their goals.
For those who are ambitious, being able to reach their goals is crucial. Without this chance, they will become frustrated, bored, and they might even come to resent the career they have spent so long in and worked so hard at. This is why some people leave their jobs; they just can’t see a way to progress.
Nurses don’t have this issue. Or at least, they shouldn’t have this issue. There are many levels of nursing to aim for, and DNP (Doctor of Nursing Practice) is the highest level of all. This could be the ultimate career goal for many nurses, and there are ample opportunities to study for this degree, including online courses. Working online to achieve additional qualifications to advance your career means that you don’t have to take time away from your important nursing role, and neither do you have to sacrifice time with your family. You can enjoy the work-life balance, enhance your career, and continue to gain experience.
The DNP offers nurses a great number of benefits. To find out more about them, take a good look at the useful infographic below.
