On April 24th, 2017, I updated and republished a blog post entitled, “The 10,000-Foot View Of Your Nursing Career.”

And when we can’t see the forest for the trees in our nursing careers, we need to get in that hot air balloon and get above it all so that we can take in the expanse and see our career in its entirety, away from the daily muck and mire.

The Three R’s of Nursing, The Nurse Keith Show, EPS 105

We nurses deserve a lot in return for what we do. The nursing profession gives so much, and while we don’t do it for the praise and glamor, every professional wants to be seen for who they are and what they bring to the proverbial table. 

Back in 2013, I wrote a blog post entitled “The Three R’s of Nursing,” and I received a lot of very positive feedback about the messages that it contained. On April 17th, 2017, I edited and published an updated version of that post, and I decided it was good fodder for a podcast episode — so here we are.

Nursing Salaries and the Cost of Living, The Nurse Keith Show, EPS 103

On episode 102 of The Nurse Keith Show, I gave you a view into the latest Bureau of Labor Statistics data on nurses and nursing jobs here in the United States.
