Discuss how healthcare trends have impacted nursing education.
Consider topics such as the aging population, advances in technology, and a move toward outpatient care and illness prevention, rather than inpatient care and illness treatment. How do you believe this might impact your future educational, academic, and career goals? Define career readiness for nursing practice. How have you already or can you prepare yourself for effective nursing practice amidst these emerging trends? What nursing roles interest you most that are outside of your current role/expertise? What additional knowledge/skills do you need to acquire to function effectively in these roles?
