One of the benefits of being a nurse is that there are a number of career paths in which to be successful. Nursing is not like being a psychologist where the career path is pretty much set in stone. Instead, there are various positions based on your education and career objectives. There are licensed practical nurses (LPN’s), which take their direction from registered nurses and train for about one year. Then there is the registered nurse (RN), who can choose a degree program in a university, which is the BSN and then there is the diploma nurses that leads to the RN but are mostly trained in hospitals and take three years to complete.

As the 2012 Olympics in London steadily approaches, Soliant’s Olympian, Keith Moffat, updates us on his progress:
It’s less than a 100 days to the London Olympics, has your training or motivation changed now that we’re getting close so close?
Yes my training has changed and I am more motivated. My workouts are more intense. I always make sure I do everything in my workout and a little more. I do not want to look back and feel like I did not do everything possible to make this Olympic team. I may even cut my hours so that I can take my training up a notch.
What’s been going on for work? We heard you shot an internal video for Soliant – can you tell us about that?
Work has been both busy and fun at the same time. I was asked by Ron Washburn [Soliant’s Vice President of Nursing Operations] if I had any acting skills. I told him that, in fact, I had very little! He said that he could use me in Soliant’s next training video anyway.
Two other colleagues and I acted demonstrated a scene about handling client phone calls. I really didn’t have much time to memorize the lines, so I just read them as we filmed. It was a fun video. Everyone loved when I jumped on top of the desk and started dancing. I hope to shoot another one in the future. Continue reading “Coming into the Home Stretch”
