When Mona Clayton became a registered nurse, she did so to make a better life for her and her daughter. The single mother was determined to show her daughter what could be accomplished through hard work and dedication.
It has been more than 10 years since Ms. Clayton has passed her California state nursing exam and not only has she had a successful nursing career, she has obtained her Bachelor of Science degree and started her own company, Nurses Roc 2 Publishing.
"The vision of Nurses Roc 2 Publishing is twofold," states Ms. Clayton.
"To bring awareness about the nursing profession and its many opportunities and to publish books and promote seminars and workshops that will help nursing students accomplish their goals."
One resource published by "Nurses Roc" is "From Student to Nurse, Surviving the Journey" the highly successful debut book by Mona Clayton. Regarded as a must have by many nursing professionals, "From Student to Nurse" is a common sense guide for nursing students to help eliminate some of the anxiety associated with entering this exciting field.
"I took my personal experiences and created a guide that has helped nursing students around the world" said Ms. Clayton.
Because of the popularity of "Surviving the Journey," Ms. Clayton is launching a 2012 speaking and book signing tour to promote the benefits of a career in nursing.
The "The Surviving The Journey" Tour featuring Mona Clayton kicked off in January at the Long Beach Job Corps. She will also visit nursing schools, colleges and host seminars with the goal of reaching 100,000 single mothers and convincing them that nursing is one of the most rewarding careers in the world.
