I was thinking about my life and nursing goals and decided that my primary goal is to do good in this world. But, there is a bit more to it. Ever years the goals that I have as a nurse evolve slightly. I set new objectives for career aspirations, education, and networking. However, at the very core of who I am, some goals will remain the same. I’m constantly striving for them.
My Nursing Goals
Before I became one, I had no idea what it was like to be a nurse. I didn’t know what my nursing goals would be. While earning a decent living is one of the reasons I decided to become a nurse. It isn’t the primary reason. Although, some of the highest-paid nurses can earn over $100,000 a year!
Nursing Goal: Helping Others
One of my primary nursing goals is to help as many people as possible and impact the world dramatically. I’m not sure what that means in terms of quantity, but I’m going to keep going until I feel fulfilled. However, given my entrepreneurial nature, that may never occur. It’s no mistake that I chose nursing as a career. I am here on this earth to be of service to others and nursing is a great field in which to do it.
Nursing Goal: Uplifting the Nursing Profession
When I first started blogging I had a lot of disgust for the environment I was in. I wrote a lot of blogs complaining about that environment, the people I worked with, and how nurses treated each other in general. It was not uplifting and provided no value to anyone. At the time it felt therapeutic, but ultimately I was just wallowing in my own misery and not making progress to dig myself out of the hole that I now know I helped create.
I have removed any posts perceived as negative or listed specific work events. This opportunity for reflection has allowed me to perform a full social media audit as I plan for my future goals as a nurse.
Nursing Goal: Patients and Nurses Will Know How Much I care
I want to make sure that my compassion and care for nurses and the patients they serve are always obvious. The love I have for my profession should never be overshadowed by any personal conflicts I am experiencing. There is always another path I can go on. Always another opportunity to fall in love with nursing again.. I take so much pride in my chosen career. I really think I picked a field where I can make a difference, and that is all I really ever want to be known about my nursing.
Nursing Goal: Practice with Faith
I want to use my faith and relationship with God to further my work. Through prayer and perseverance, I will amplify my abilities and fulfill my purpose in whatever manner God sees fit.
Nursing Goal: Do Good in This World
Ultimately, I want to do good in this world. I want the earth the be a better place because I was in it. I want nurses to have more fulfilling careers because of the resources and support I’ve provided them. I want technology to empower and enable more nurses and patients to live happier and more fulfilled lives.
