What opportunities exist in your workplace to expand your activities? For example ... precepting, charge nurse, teaching classes for new moms, teaching prenatal classes, fund-raising events, becoming certified as a post-partum nurse, becoming certified as a lactation counselor, participating in quality improvement projects, helping with staff education projects, participating in a local, regional, or national nursing organization, etc. etc. etc.
Those are common "next steps" for new nurses who have successfully made the transition from student to professional -- and who are now looking for a "next step." Participating in such professional activities helps you to grow beyond you basic job and helps you develop a sense of the "bigger picture" of the nursing universe. As you try our and get experience with such activities, you interact with more experienced nurses who have chosen different paths in nursing as you develop new skills. You also get a chance to experience different nursing roles. After a while, you get a larger/deeper sense of your place within the nursing profession and begin to see career pathways that might be a good fit for you for the long term.
