January 24th is National “Just Do It” Day! This day is meant to motivate us to do something new or finish that thing we’ve been procrastinating – big or small. Have you been thinking about becoming a nurse educator, but delaying the decision? Why not “Just Do It!”
If the process has been too daunting– LeadNursingForward.org is here to help!
You can find an introduction to the nurse educator career on the Career Explorers: Aspiring Nurse Educators page.
