As demand for skilled nursing professionals rises, so does the need for individuals who can provide the training, mentorship, and professional development required for their success¹. Nurse educators combine clinical experience with educational skills. Their curriculum development and outstanding teaching abilities help educate and inspire a new generation of nurses. Enrolling in the Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) program at Mount Vernon Nazarene University helps registered nurses (RNs) take the first steps toward this rewarding career path. Our nursing educator Master’s online format helps working adults advance their careers with the flexibility busy professionals deserve.
In light of dramatic changes in the workforce as a result of an ongoing pandemic, the need for increased skills in any career field continues to grow. As companies are eliminating and consolidating positions, current employees will have to increase their workload and use underdeveloped skills. Upskilling has proved to be beneficial to both the individual and the company or organization, reducing costs and improving efficiency.
The most important investment a company can make is its employees. Without them, the work would never get done. While it’s essential to have a great working environment and a good salary, an often-overlooked way of investing in employees is encouraging continued education.
The job market is far different than it was 50 years ago. For the workforce today, it is not unusual for an adult to switch careers multiple times. Dramatic, mid-life career changes are on the rise. According to CNBC, 49% of middle-aged workers have made a job shift in recent years with positive results to their work-life balance and overall contentment¹.
