Vlog with Joan McDade
Faculty Member, Nursing at American Public University
Many nurses say that they are looking for opportunities, that extend beyond the bedside, and when evaluating those opportunities they realize that it’s time to pursue a higher degree. Next, they need to determine the learning environment that will help them to meet their professional goals. Most nurses pursuing advanced education do so while working full-time. There are also personal time commitments to consider when evaluating nursing programs.
In this vlog, Joan McDade talks about the expectations nurses will need to set for themselves when starting an online degree in nursing.
