The proposed format includes a Powerpoint presentation with didactic instruction and utilizing open-ended questions for interactivity. There will be a period of questions and answers, with discussion. Meeting Criteria: Significance to Nursing Education The significance is to provide a method for recruiting young people into the nursing profession, as well as to encourage retention of existing workers by promoting a career ladder to fill the shortage in specialty areas. Learning and Leading Globally: Members and Chapters As a profession, it is everyone’s responsibility to promote nursing world-wide as a viable career, by tapping into schools (K to 12) and utilizing variety of strategies to showcase nursing. Those dedicated employed Registered Nurses can also benefit by advancing his/her practice by moving from a generalist to a specialist. Leading and Learning: Moving from I Can’t to I Can If nursing can come together and actively recruit young people into this profession, there will probably be more entering our profession.
