5 Steps for Nurses to Stay Updated with Healthcare Changes.jpg

Keeping up with changes in healthcare is a daunting task. Some may say it is impossible to do so. It seems as though we are constantly bombarded with the “new” – new medical discoveries, new treatments, new technology, new rules and regulations, new equipment, new policies and procedures, new expectations, new forms, and a lot more.

These can require some sort of change on our part. So how do we stay on top of it all? Let me offer an approach:

Step 1: What do you really want to know? While it might sound radical, I believe a nurse does not need to be on top of it all. Identify the areas of the healthcare sector that are relevant and of interest to you. You would want to be on top of changes in your particular nursing specialty as well as policy, technology and regulatory issues.

Step 2: Who are the experts? Once the areas are selected, identify authoritative sources of information. Professional associations, foundations, and Federal agencies are generally credible resources as are researchers who investigate your selected areas.
