Goal Setting for Nursing Success

Sometimes when a nurse sets out to reach a goal, unfortunately they do not obtain it. Why? Maybe because the nurse was looking long-term and became overwhelmed with the size of the goal. Or maybe the goal did not come to fruition the way that the nurse envisioned, causing them to feel a sense of failure. Whatever the case may be- this next episode will have you setting clear goals and taking action to get the results that you are looking for.

A few take aways from our interview with Amy B. Wells, RN, BSN, MSN include:
  • How multiple rejections on physician assistant applications helped with nursing school;
  • What having a clear goal and hobbies outside of that goal can do for your nursing career success;
  • And why spending money on vacations and travel will make you a better nurse!
