Are you a generous boss? Are you willing to give cellphones, desktop, or a musical instrument like a weather king to your loyal and deserving employees this Christmas? Well, that would be the best thing to do if you’re an employer who cares for the welfare of your staff. By recognizing their effort, the more they will be inspired to give their best foot forward.

But an extra cash for a performance bonus apart from the 13th month pay would surely be appreciated by your loyal employees. Think about it. 🙂

While nursing is already a great and in-demand field for those interested in the healthcare industry and in taking care of others, the industry offers more variety than you might currently be aware of. Have you already earned a bachelor’s degree in nursing? If so, you’ll certainly be doing yourself a favor by attending an institution like GW University or Maryville University to earn your master’s degree in nursing. Learn more about the reasons to advance your knowledge of nursing and your ability to help others as you help yourself to a satisfying career.

More Options for Specialization

If you enjoy variety, you’ll be pleased to learn that earning a graduate degree in nursing is a perfect way to specialize in several different fields of nursing. Some of your options include pediatric care, mental health and oncology. If you’re more business-minded, GW University offers an MBA in Healthcare, which you might like to combine with a standard master’s degree in nursing to become a nurse administrator, Chief Nurse Executive or VP of Nursing.

Better Pay

Graduating with a master’s degree in nursing from a school like Maryville University is a great way for you to increase your overall earning potential. Just as earning a nursing bachelor’s degree is an excellent way to earn more than you would with an associate’s degree, the same is true of a master’s degree if you’re looking to take the next step and pay scale in nursing. Even greater is the fact that nursing is a continuously growing field, which often equals continuously growing opportunities to earn more, which could balance out the overall cost of earning a graduate degree.

Become Eligible for Certification

Is there a specific nursing certification you’d like to obtain? If so, having a master’s degree under your belt is sure to make it easier for you to earn that certification. Now you’ll have the credentials you’ll likely need for the nursing specializations mentioned above.

On a related note, a master’s degree in nursing can help to better prepare you for stricter licensing laws. While having an undergraduate degree might currently be enough to allow you to become a registered nurse, it may not be enough in the coming years. The reason for this is because the field is advancing, which means the laws and regulations for it are advancing as well. Rather than wait and see how things shake out, you’ll likely be better off getting ahead and staying ahead of the curve and the competition that goes with it.

Become a Teacher

Besides the many specializations in nursing, you also have the option of becoming a teacher, which adds even more chances to spread your wings. You can become instrumental in teaching, inspiring and seeing the next generation of nurses and healthcare professionals. See firsthand how many people share your dream and desire to improve the health of people not only here in the U.S., but all over the world.

Nursing is a career branch that splits off into several different directions. By earning a master’s degree in the field, you allow yourself to explore different careers and opportunities with ease. Improve the health of your career and your patients by enrolling in a program today.

Preparing for an operation

After years of suffering from prolonged and heavy menstruation and failed hormonal therapy to manage my endometriosis and adenomyosis (and recently adenomyoma), I have decided to undergo the knife soon. According to my doctor, surgery or hysterectomy is the only viable solution to spare me of constant pain. The recommendation also came after my recent ultrasound showed that I have a growing mass in the uterus. The doctor said it could be adenomyoma and it has to be removed immediately.

I will be bringing all my medical documents and meet with the OB this week to discuss everything about surgery -what to expect, the operation and hospitalization expenses, and operation schedule.

Pending the surgery, I will have to stock up on the doctor-prescribed medicines that I am taking to ease the pain and control bleeding for the next menstrual cycle.

Endometriosis and adenomyosis have affected young women and women nearing the menopausal age. I’m in my 40s and I have suffered from this medical condition for several years now. I can’t do anything or function well when I’m bleeding and in constant pain.

If you are suffering from the same ailment, you can always talk to a doctor to help you get well and improve your way of living. Reading medical journals and references on the net could be of help to make you understand what is endometriosis and adenomysis. But a visit to a medical professional is always the right thing to do. Please remember do not self medicate.

I’ll update this post once I have secured a date for the surgery.
