What is this article about?

There comes a time in almost every nurse’s life when professional and/or personal reinvention is called for. Such a moment may be born of upheaval precipitated by a variety of factors, or it may simply be an inner knowing that change is needed. In any case, the common thread is that, for whatever reason, your lifestyle and/or career path are crying out for change, evolution, recalibration and renewal.
