    I'm a newbie to the RN world (LPN for 12 yrs and ADN grad in May) and would like to see something on, oh say, skills (particulary IV), or how to physically handle working the "night shift", or tips for the new nurse, and even how to build camaraderie within a unit...

    Topic suggestion:

    Quality of nursing practice today.

    What happened to the standards we were taught in nursing school? Do nurses still feel that patient care is most important? With recent experiences I have had in hospitals, I am beginning to wonder is the shortage even worse than we previously thought. With many of the nurses in pracitce now doing such a poor job they might just give nursing a bad name.

    How about a contest on how either how nursing as a profession or how a particular pt has impacted your life. Something encouraging, reminding us all why we do what we do.

    An article on a patient or patients who have changed our lives, good or bad

    I like the topic of burn out and stress

    Confronting death - can mean anything you want it to mean.

    I also like the idea of a patient that changed your life...good or bad. I also think that any sort of 'death' topic is important to be discussed as well.

    Hey Brian,

    Just for fun, as nurses we see things a little different from our supervisor and higher ups. I'd like to know what would a nurse do to make their work environment more user friendly, like no more concrete floors or rooms that are big enough. If a nurse could create their ideal work environment, what would it be? Bathroom Breaks?

    Hi, I would like to see more articles about how nurses develop self-awareness and the impact it has on their nursing practice.

    I would like to suggest the impact certain policies that actually get in the way of patient care (especially long term care settings); what, if anything, we can do about it.:typing
