(Solution) NR500 Week 1: Collaboration Cafe

As you begin the journey into graduate education, it is important to understand the value of the Masters Prepared Nurse. Take a moment and reflect on your decision to return to graduate school. What were the motivating factors: a better job, requirement for promotion, a desire for professional development, or the opportunity to influence positive change and shape the future of nursing practice? Take a moment to reflect on your “why”.  When we understand our “why” it can help to motivate us during challenging times during this educational journey.
