An individual's career trajectory evolves with each job and role transition. Over time, job/role experiences trigger choices as to whether to stay in a particular job setting or role. Reflective questions guide the process of deciding whether and when it is time to transition. Considerations include role fit with lifestyle expectations, need for advanced knowledge and formal education, and readiness for upward or lateral movement. Using a framework modeled after the work of Bolman and Deal, this article presents 4 lenses to guide a careerist's readiness and need for change: human resource, structural, political, and symbolic factors...

All leaders require a plan and a template for either transition from a career to another career or retirement. Part of this plan includes receiving transition information from others. Reflections about an individual's career, observations from a career, and insights about strategies to create a rich and robust transition experience are discussed in this article. Also included are suggestions for the "transition receivers," or those benefitting from the experiences and wisdom of others, to optimize their career transitions while recognizing the value of transitioning as a 2-way process and dialogue...

For chief nursing officers, volatility has become an expected characteristic of the professional landscape. Recent studies indicate that this volatility is likely to continue for at least the next decade. For chief nursing officers caught in an organizational crisis, the thought of leaving the leadership ranks triggers professional angst and a range of personal emotion. This article examines the most common reasons chief nursing officers leave their positions and how they can take steps to rebound. It also explores the tools and resources that can positively affect these monumental transitions, whether voluntary or involuntary...

Drawn from 54 years of experience as a nursing professional, this author gives a personal account of 2 types of career transitions: (1) normative transitions/stages, which include position changes, educational pursuits, and promotion; and (2) cataclysmic transitions, such as dismissal, bankruptcy, and mergers, that arise out of disruptive work situations that dramatically influence one's beliefs, actions, and perspective over time and ultimately shape a career. The importance of influencers throughout a career and lessons learned along the way are also explored...

To investigate the characteristics of nurses' empathy and explore the correlation between nurses' empathy and personality, a cross-sectional study with 250 nurses from a general hospital in China was conducted using the Chinese Big Five Personality Inventory (CBF-PI) and the Jefferson Scale of Empathy-Health Professionals (JSE-HP). The total score of the JSE-HP was 110.60 (SD = 11.71). Employment forms and child-rearing situations were the significant predictors of the JSE-HP score. Multiple hierarchical regression analysis indicated that the JSE-HP score was positively correlated with conscientiousness and agreeableness and the contribution of CBF-PI to JSE-HP scale variances was 15...

Nurse manager satisfaction and transformational leadership competency significantly improved following the implementation of large span of control mitigation strategies...

Inequalities in society, culture, and finance have resulted in civil unrest, rioting, and intentional violence throughout our history. Nowhere is this currently more apparent than in the cities of Ferguson and Baltimore. It is not the civil unrest itself, but the resulting rioting and intentional violence that can create a disaster situation. This increases the care burden of health care providers during times when the governmental structure may be overwhelmed or functioning in a less than optimal manner. Beginning with the death of Michael Brown, civil unrest over the last 2 years has necessitated a closer examination of the role nurse leaders play in preparing their staff and facilities for potential results of this civil unrest...
