    00:05 So, lastly, I want to mention long-term orientation and short-term orientation.

    00:11 With short-term orientation, we want immediate gratification and so it emphasizes success now and with long-term orientation, we focus on long-term planning so success later. So now we can look at that in a multitude of ways but what I recommend is that we think about what is our short-term goal. Right? And what do I need to do to achieve it? And then we also need to have long-term goals and I know when you're sitting in a space of getting your first nursing degree you focused on just that but you do want to focus also or think about write it down.

    00:47 What are my long-term goals? So where do I see myself in 5 years? For instance, I knew when I was in my bachelor's program I wanted to be a nurse practitioner.

    00:57 Didn't know when, but I know that that was my next step. So, what do you need to do in terms of that? And that's really important for people who are thinking about being a CRNA. You need to know that if that's your goal, then you need to work in ICU depending on the program. There's a certain number of years that you have to work in ICU before you can go. You also need to focus on whatever your GPA is because if you are planning on getting an advance degree that requires a certain GPA. So focus on "How do I achieve that now so I don't have to go back and take some extra classes to get the GPA up, spend more money by just thinking?" If you want to be a nurse executive, what do you need to do to prepare for that? And it will matter because once you start working, there are certain outcomes that you must achieve before you can pursue those different opportunities.
