National Nurses Week 2015, (May 6-12) is a great time for nurses to take stock of who we are, where we are and where we are going. Personally, I think this is a great time to be a nurse at HCA. The healthcare industry is undergoing significant transformative change and HCA-affiliated nurses have a front row seat. As a nurse at one of the world’s leading healthcare systems, we can both witness and influence change.
When you decide to pursue advanced education as a nurse, one of the first things you’ll discover is you have several nursing degree options to choose from. For many, it can be a little overwhelming. Today, I want to highlight one nursing degree that has grown in popularity over the last several years; the Doctorate of Nursing Practice or DNP.
