    I would like to know everyone's opinion on new grads working in specilaized areas IE the ICU or ER. In my experience most new grads are not able to think critacally and see the whole picture. I have been a nurse for close to 15 years and when I was a new grad I know there was no way that I could have or felt comfortable working in the ICU. I'm not sure, but are they the only ones applying for the jobs? If so why aren't hospitals offering more to experienced nurses to join their team?

    I think topics such as "what makes you keep coming back to work" despite healthcare issues would be inspiring. Also sharing advice never hurts... could be about dealing with difficult people/ patients, coworkers or anyother frequently discussed topic. I think everyone could use a ideas to improve the workplace

    I like "how nursing has changed us", "patient who has changed us", what's happened to nursing standards. I'd also like something on how we as nursing professionals can help each other know, stop "eating our young"???

    1. A topic on why we chose our particular specialties, or job roles might produce some good articles.

    2. How our view of the nursing profession has changed since the day we started nursing school could be interesting. People at different stages of their careers would produce very different articles and viewpoints.

    3. Our hopes and dreams either for ouselves as nurses -- or for the profession as a whole.
