For many years, Jenn wanted to go back to school for her Master’s in education. Now, she could finally fulfill her dream with an online program. The barriers of not having a school close by and the job and family responsibilities were no longer an issue for her.
There is an increased need for nurses to continue their education as healthcare changes. Nurses are on the front lines of change and have the opportunity to make a positive impact on high quality patient care as the demand for services increase and technology and data usage becomes the standard.
In the past, continuing your education was difficult with time constraints, not having programs in your area or trying to balance your work and family schedule with your school calendar. These barriers are non-existent today with online programs that offer quality education and allow you to achieve your dream to advance your career.
Making the decision to go back to school also means you have to reorganize your daily life to accommodate your schedule and those demands to complete your program. Here are 3 suggestions to do it right:
1. Keep your reason for going back to school front and center.
Why do you want your degree? Is it a promotion, another position, greater flexibility, a sense of accomplishment, what is the reason? Write out your ultimate goal and post it by your computer or where you can remind yourself of what your goal is. Keeping this in mind will give you the motivation to keep going when things get hectic.
