It’s no secret that professionals drawn to nursing exhibit extraordinary personal strength and skill, amid circumstances most would find daunting.
As highly skilled clinicians, nurses have always been at the forefront of transforming healthcare. Increasingly, they’re transferring their skills—in thought leadership, strategy, sales, and beyond—to fulfill non-patient-facing roles in healthcare or in completely different fields.
By leveraging their education, experience, and empathy, nurses continue to use their patient-centered lens and resourcefulness to shape innovation that adds value to their organizations, patients, the nursing workforce, and the healthcare industry as a whole.
As the role of the nurse expands, it’s evident that leadership from nurses is needed at every level and across all settings in healthcare. And for those who choose career paths away from the bedside, opportunities abound to find fulfilling careers where their skills advance other disciplines.
