This eBook originated from my experience as a nurse educator and academic administrator for a variety of nursing programs. I started my nursing career as a second lieutenant in the Army caring for those serving our country in the Vietnam War. My career has included working as a staff nurse, a charge nurse, a nurse manager, a chief nursing officer to a nurse educator progressing from instructor, professor emeritus to vice president of nursing. I want to share with you some thoughts and suggestions in how your journey as a nursing student may somehow be hopefully impacted by my “words of wisdom”. Students have limited resources to assist them in understanding what to expect in their journey to become a nurse.
