What is this article about?

Over the course of your nursing career, you experience and accomplish a great deal. You earn degrees and certifications, care for patients, engage in continuing education, take part in research, and otherwise move your career forward in inspiring ways. In the final analysis, the whole of your professional life is certainly greater than the sum of its parts. Learning Across the Nursing Lifespan If we could name one thing that nurses always need to be doing, it would be learning. We learn plenty in nursing school, but healthcare is a moving target, and the evidence base for our nursing intervention.

It is validating and reinforcing the ways as a nurse you can communicate with your patients and peers and also makes you feel like experience also counts for knowledge.
