Now that you have already been employed, your next step in your career would be to continue your job plainly as a staff nurse or take some dream to level up and specialize. This is when continuing education comes in. To some states, continuing education in nursing is but a requirement in order to maintain the validity of the license and not just something like of a military promotion adding decorations to their nursing uniform. For some nurses, continuing education is their way of updating their skills and practices so to be able to comply with the demands of the advancement in the profession and in the technologies associated with it.
To back us with some current stories about the importance of continuing education for skill development, we can turn to some news channels. Just a few weeks, a video of a British nurse who accidentally turn off a quadriplegic's life support system had become viral over the net. So viral that said video has even featured to local TV news outlets around the world. The patient, according the news, suffered irreparable brain damage caused by such accident. For one, the nurse in her nursing uniform have been identified and known to be in her late 40's to early 50's. As initial assessment, the said nurse could have been no longer updated about the system.
Now we proceed on the things that you need to know in dealing with continuing education.
Let us take by way of an example the nursing profession particularly Masters in Nursing or what is basically known as nursing specialization. Specialization is another step toward nursing profession success. It is a way of leveling up and to vie for a promotion or a salary increase. Other forms of continuing education vary according to purpose and credits and may be in a form of seminars, weekend conferences, online classes, and send-in quizzes.
The first thing that you should take into consideration is your budget. If you are working, try to save first and be as earnest as you can so as you can pursue post-graduate courses. It is not just taken as a trend, but also it is for your personal gain in the future. There are a lot of nurses who opt to wear nursing uniforms outside their domiciled city, yet they become successful. Missing your family is a little sacrifice compared to the large amount of money that you can obtain in your employment.
Then, you need to consider your current situation in the family. If you are married and you have a working husband or wife, you might think first of discussing the idea with your partner. Also, you should remember that going back to school will require time. You can choose the weekends to take on classes of in between your shifts. You may also take a modular scheme so you will be able to read your materials at least 3 hours of your vacant time then get ready for a periodic exam.
Continuing education is becoming an integral part of the nursing profession and for a nurse to complete her or his dream of caring for the sick while on his/ her nursing uniform, CE is the way. Now, sit back and weigh the things you need to consider for your next feat in your career.
George Foerstel is a Human Resource officer of a hospital. He knows that one can only acquire depth in terms of job security when a nurse get to lay his/her nursing uniform for a while and don a school uniform for continuing education.
Were it not for adult education, a lot of people in the United States, and in fact all over the world today, would have seen their lives abruptly come to an end before their time because they could not get employed. because they did not get educated. So I need you to see adult education as your chance to make a serious change, and for you to take it now.
I know how you must feel like your whole life is about to come to an end because no one will hire you. What I suggest is that you go back to school right now. It's takes you another couple of years; and you could make it out with your honors degree.
People have lost jobs and opportunities because they did not have the education to hold on to them. That does not have to be your own story; you have adult education today, you could see to it that you are adequately qualified and certified for it.
You can only go so far in education before you become an adult. I mean, by the time you are graduating from senior high, you are close enough to no longer being a minor in the United States. If you intend to go the rest of the way, what you are seeking is adult education because you are then going to school as an adult. So you see, adult education is not such a big deal after all; and you are not alone.
When hiring managers, companies like to use graduate school qualifications and such the like. You don't have to give up because you don't have it, though. Instead you could hurry back to school already and take the studies. You'll be qualified in time for the promotion.
With so many people in the country missing out a lot on education, it is understandable that there be as many adult education programs around as there are. Someone needs to create the opportunities that people need to make meaning of their lives.
There are indeed a lot of people in the country who don't think a lot of adult education, but that's their loss. If you know what is good for you, you'd seek it and come back to show them. Only it could be a bit late by then - they could be gone.
You know, you could still learn despite your current age. There are a lot of people who think that because they are older than a certain age they cannot go to school anymore, but there is nothing further from the truth than that. With adult education, there isn't anything that you are interested in that you cannot learn. Believe it.
Education is only one criterion that hiring companies use to hire their staff, but it is a pretty important criterion that features in almost any employment scheme. If you do not have the kind of academic or educational qualifications they are looking for, they often just politely ask you to go. So if you want a better fighting chance, you want to try some adult education.
Your adult education - or the lack thereof - could be the only thing standing between you and your dream job. Don't you think you ought to get started as soon as possible? I mean, in the United States it is a big deal, and one that has been made available such that you could learn almost for a song these days. There is no reason for you to be living in defeat.
