Your most pressing concerns with the profession and healthcare: Nursing is a culture of the oppressed, nurses need to join hands and claim their right to be partners in healthcare. Healthcare is becomig more and more fragmented, we do not provide total care, fail to address important psycho, social, emotional and spiitual issues that affect a person's ability to make informed and wise decisions. It also hinders a patients ability to recoup, because the stress of unmet need decreases their bodys' ability to repond positively to treatment
How do you feel the coming nursing shortage (as baby boomer enter the healthcare system, and nurses retire in droves) will affect patient care? Patient care is affected by poor status of nursing and the resultant attrition. This is a bigger indicator of unsatisfactory care than anything else (in my opinion)
