No parent likes to think about his or her own mortality, but eventually we all die. An interesting infographic from the University of Arizona reminds us that 60% of all deaths worldwide are due to chronic illness and with an aging population to contend with the American healthcare system is under immense pressure.
This represents a great opportunity for parents who are thinking of entering higher education to retrain in the nursing profession and help implement a patient-centered healthcare system that will benefit you and your child. RN to MSN programs can be studied online, which is a great way to boost your qualifications. In addition, as the infographic reminds us, nurses with an MSN stand out more and stand a greater chance of finding employment and leadership roles.
The Dissecting Patient-Centered Care infographic was produced by the University of Arizona’s College of Nursing.
