Young adulthood is an exciting time in ones


life. It comes with both exhilarating
opportunities and daunting challenges. For
much of their prior life, young adults were told
they could do and be anything they chose to
be. When faced with the decision on what to
study and what to do for a career, young
adults may feel unprepared for the future and
unsure on how to decide on a path forward.
Consider the following as you seek to council
and coach your eager but uncertain young
decision-makers.

TEACHING YOUNG ADULTS


(20-40 YEARS OF AGE)
The developmental tasks of young adults include
Establishing and managing a home
becoming established in an occupation or career,
and starting a family

All of these changes can be sources of stress.

Health teaching topics that the nurse may become involved in include:
stress reduction
health maintenance and promotion

and for some young adults:


marital adjustment
prenatal teaching
and child-rearing practices.

Important nursing activities for young adults include

teaching risk factors for future disease


teaching how to alter lifestyles to decrease risk
and finding opportunities for health promotion in the
many types of settings where nurses work with young
adults.

When teaching young adults who are preparing to


be parents, the nurse should focus on
normal physical and emotional changes associated with pregnancy
sexual activity during pregnancy
preparation for the newborn
diet counseling
preparation for the parenting role,
and the process of birth, including procedures during labor, delivery,
and the postpartum period.

As you explore your own abilities think offive professional people


whom you admire. Talk with them to learn what they do and what
they like and dont like about their careers.

As

you broaden your view of the world and explore your options
for contribution, you will be amazed at what presents itself.

PAY THE PRICE

Learning

to pay the price is important when


considering the direction of your education and
subsequent career.

BE PASSIONATE

It is not good policy to pursue a career solely on the


basis of earning potential. Your pursuit of excellence in
the work you love as you seek to contribute.

KNOW YOUR VALUES

Living consistent with your values helps you build


trust. Trust in yourself and others is essential to your
long-term education and career success.

DEVELOP YOUR DECISION CRITERIA

You

will likely face several different employment options


throughout your life.
When faced with key decisions about your job, how will you
make the right choice? In preparation for answering this question
take some time to develop your decision criteria for determining
your best options.

DEVELOP YOUR PERSONAL NETWORK

Networking can help you gain tremendous insight


into what jobs might work, and what jobs might not
be an appropriate fit.

DEVELOP A PERSONAL MISSION

Creating a personal mission


statement or personal manifesto
will help bring your contributions
into focus.

BE RESULTS FOCUSED

As

you pursue your work, develop


a bias for producing results. Dont
confuse activity with actual
performance.

EXAMINE YOUR MOTIVES


to bless and not impress.
There is great power in pure motives. If we make service
to others a priority, we will find that all other aspects of
our lives will be positively impacted.

Dont give up. Stay the course

Dont be afraid of failure. If you dont fail miserably


at some point in life, you are not trying hard enough.
sometimes these experiences are necessary
because they teach you things you need to learn.
