2018 Nursing Goals

With the new year coming up, people often come up with goals that they would like to achieve within the next year.

This year, I did not meet one of the goals that I set out to meet. For over three months, I have tried to obtain a different nursing position. The only nursing position I have been able to obtain is a full time position at the nursing facility I have been working at for past 19 months. This is after three unsuccessful interviews and over 50 job applications. This has caused a lot of internal turmoil and distress after each disappointment.

So, for this next year, my goal is to give myself the gift of peace. This means no more job applications. I will try and do my best to avoid even looking at new nursing positions for the next year. I will focus on mastering each skill that nurses at my facility provide instead. Additionally, I will try and focus on my own career and not that of others. If this means unfollowing some of my "successful" colleagues, so be it. I have a tendency to compare myself to others, so if I need to "block" certain information from coming my way, then I should do so.

For me, my nursing goal in 2018 will not be about trying to change my position. My goal is to obtain peace with what I am already doing.

What is your goal for 2018?

I think that's a wonderful idea, purplegal. Peace is a beautiful thing. Let go of the frustration of the last year, focus on being the best nurse you can be in your current position.

Not sure what my goals are. I'm happy in my job, and just hope to continue to gain expertise and help my patients. I guess that's a goal.

My goal is to not have to work anymore, ie, retire. Not sure how likely that will be, but there ya are.

My goal, in 2018, to decrease the stress in my life, is to get rid of superfluous and unnecessary endeavors like setting goals.

I think I'm also going to not make a goal of being less redundant.
