Nurses have more career options now than ever before. Today, many nurses work in areas such as health policy, academics, etc. I think it would be fun to discuss our long term goals; I plan to go to begin as a BSN, and then get my PhD and work in health policy. What are your goals? Do you plan to stay in bedside nursing? Do you plan to become an academic? Or do you want to become a NP? Please share your ideas with me. Thank you!
