Taking the Next Step on the Nephrology Nursing
Career Ladder

ANNA’s revised professional development guide tackles research, education, leadership, and other career issues.

Pitman, NJ - The American Nephrology Nurses’ Association (ANNA) has updated its best-selling nephrology nursing career guide, Career Fulfillment in Nephrology Nursing: Your Guide to Professional Development. This popular resource was fully revised and updated by experts in nephrology nursing and career development.

With a new format separating information into nine chapters, the Professional Development Guide covers every major area of professional development for nephrology nurses. The chapters include:

  • Setting the Stage for Professional Development
  • The Nursing Research Process
  • Education in Nursing: A Professional Obligation
  • Clinical Expertise: Achieving Practice Excellence
  • Health Policy: Implications for Every Nurse
  • Crossing Your ‘T’s and Dotting Your ‘I’s: Professional Etiquette in Nursing
  • Professional Communications: Publications and Presentations
  • Leadership: A Peak and Perk of Professional Development
  • Professional Affiliations: Membership Has Its Privileges

The 116-page soft-back guide contains nine continuing nursing education (CNE) self-evaluation forms, one following each chapter. Readers can earn up to 11.0 hours of CNE credit.

“The revised guide is convenient, it’s easy to use, and I think readers will really benefit from the guidance it contains,” said Editor Carol M. Headley, DNSc, RN, CNN.

Career Fulfillment in Nephrology Nursing: Your Guide to Professional Development is $60, with an ANNA member-discounted price of $40. To order, visit ANNA’s Web site, www.annanurse.org, or contact ANNA’s National Office at 888-600-2662 or anna@ajj.com.
