In Episode 8 of “The Nurse Keith Show“, holistic career coach Keith Carlson discusses the excitement, fear, and the inevitability of change.
Nursing and healthcare are dynamic and constantly changing, and the savvy 21st-century nurse must read the writing on the wall, listen to the proverbial wind, and otherwise keep his or her finger on the pulse of the societal zeitgeist.
In this episode, Keith discusses the wisdom of nursing career guru Donna Cardillo, including her many books, CDs, DVDs, and live seminars and workshops held around the United States. Keith also mentions Legal Nurse Consultant Lorie Brown, and the explosion of opportunities for nurses in the legal field.
Meanwhile, Keith expounds on the opportunities opening for nurses in terms of elder care, ambulatory care, and the potential for entrepreneurial ventures that are ripe for the picking, including the private case management of elders whose children live in other parts of the country or world. The savvy nurse can serve as the eyes and ears of the distant adult children of elderly parents, managing the care of that parent so that the adult child can rest in the knowledge that a trusted professional nurse is on the scene.
Finally, Keith advises nurses to keep their ears to the rails, listening to the news and to podcasts, reading blogs, books, magazines, and journals, and otherwise staying abreast of patterns and changes in the outer culture that will frequently herald opportunities for employment, entrepreneurship, and leveraging our nursing skills in myriad ways.
Join Keith for an inspiring conversation about facilitating change in your own career, and preparing for a more exciting and fulfilling professional life as you keep your finger on the pulse of change as you prepare for the future.
