How many times have you changed employers in your career? I have changed employers only 3 times in my career.

What specific qualities and traits do you feel make nurses especially qualified to operate a business? Perseverance, Open mind, empathy, strictness, research minded, confidence.

Do you currently practice as a nurse? If yes in what type of setting? I currently practice as a media television producer and host to educate the public on medical issues.

Your most pressing concerns with the profession and healthcare: Lack of knowledge given in Nursing schools on both theory and practice. Lack of surgical experience and sterile technique. There appears to be a lack of followup. Too many hours spent studying on non medical/nursing subjects. I am also concerned about the changes in health care eliminating time in hospitals etc.

View previous responses: http://www.nursefriendly.com/concerns/

How do you feel the coming nursing shortage (as baby boomer enter the healthcare system, and nurses retire in droves) will affect patient care? The retiring experienced nurses will leave a big gap in the health care system. Both their previous education and experience have saved many lives the dedication and education now appear to lack these attributes.
