Review

Take Charge of Your Nursing Career provides practical information that nurses can use throughout their professional careers. With tips and diverse content right at your fingertips, this book is your own personal mentor from start to finish. Dr. Lois S. Marshall has mentored nurses from all professional arenas, including me, for more than 30 years; now she can mentor you, too. --Angela Romack, MSN, RN, CCRN

Dr. Lois S. Marshall has written an invaluable resource for nurses at any stage of their careers. Quotes from real nurses who are dealing with the issues discussed in each chapter provide a real and straightforward perspective to her work. Her thoughtful advice is succinctly and effectively expressed. You cannot help but feel she is there at your shoulder, mentoring you through the process of considering a transition in your career and how to accomplish it. I highly recommend Take Charge of Your Nursing Career for nurses as they navigate their professional lives. I only wish that I had had such an honest and thorough reference as I negotiated my own. --Leda M. McKenry, PhD, MBA, APRN, FAAN

Take Charge of Your Nursing Career hits the mark in terms of the processes required for all levels of career change. It is a very good read and offers excellent examples on how to navigate the changing landscape in career building for the professional nurse. This book will be invaluable for those who readily accept change as well as those who are reluctant to change. There is much in the book that should be in the toolkit of mentors and mentees alike. --Georgie Labadie, EdD, RN, ANEF

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book did not really contain any information I did not already know. A lot of quotes from nurses that are not really helpful and seem like filler.
