Planning For A Successful 2023

Jan 31, 2023

It's the end of the first month of the year and many of us have already lapsed on our resolutions. I believe that this an excellent opportunity to get back on track and continue to plan for the future. In this blog post, I'll share some things that online nurse educators can do to make 2023 even better.

If you have not done so as yet, it's important to first start by reflecting on the past year and using these reflections to help you develop goals for the current year and then preparing accordingly. This could mean taking time to review class materials, organizing lesson plans, or researching new methods of instruction that could benefit students. It also requires staying abreast of any changes in the field and staying up to date on any new technologies that could be incorporated into courses.

It's also important to think about how you can engage your students in meaningful dialogue and activities, as well as how to use technology in a way that enhances learning without getting bogged down in technicalities. Consider incorporating different types of platforms for effective communication, such as discussion boards and video conferencing tools, which can help keep students engaged and provide an opportunity for feedback.

You should also think about how to be more efficient in your workflows by utilizing technology, such as automation and scheduling apps that can help manage tasks and free up time for other activities. Additionally, when possible, look for ways to streamline processes, such as automating feedback on assignments or using a grading rubric that can be applied quickly and consistently.

Finally, make sure you are taking the time to invest in yourself. Whether it's attending professional development conferences, joining online learning communities, reading industry news or simply taking time for self-care, make sure you are taking the time to stay sharp and motivated.

By starting early, staying organized and investing in yourself, online nurse educators can set themselves up for success in the upcoming year. With some thoughtful preparation and dedication, there's no limit to what you can achieve!

Here's a quick outline to get you started on making 2023 your most successful year ever!

  • 1. Define your goals for the year - what do you hope to achieve in your role as an online nurse educator?
  • 2. Create a plan of action - how will you go about achieving your goals, and what steps will you take to get there?
  • 3. Set realistic deadlines - when do you hope to have each goal accomplished by, and what can you realistically achieve in that timeframe given your other commitments?
  • 4. Make use of available resources - what books, websites, articles, or other materials can help support your efforts as an online nurse educator in 2023?
  • 5. Stay organized and on track - keep a calendar or planner with all of your important dates and deadlines, and check in regularly to ensure that you're making progress towards your goals. 

I also have an excellent resource to help you start 2023 off on the right foot. It's called The Productive Online Nurse Educator membership.
