YOUR NEXT SHIFT BOOK
Nursing offers many opportunities, but there’s no denying it’s tough—and sometime thankless—work. A nurse’s mindset often means the difference between an average and awesome career, but few nursing books focus on this vital aspect of the profession.
Entrepreneur and clinical nurse Elizabeth Scala, MSN/MBA, RN, provides the means to take your nursing career to the next level. Beginning with the many issues affecting nursing, Scala describes the negative “monkey” mindsets that interfere with a nurses’ ability to enjoy their profession. She then introduces a set of seven spiritual laws to help improve a nurse’s career outlook.
Each chapter ends with a series of self-reflective questions to help nurses guide their careers in whichever direction fits their needs, culminating in a step-by-step daily process to help nurses continue to love and enjoy their jobs.
Your next shift could be the start of a new outlook on your career aspirations and daily nursing. Let Scala show you the way to a brighter, more meaningful future.
