I'm from California. The Board of Nursing in California has their own way of defining nursing as it relates to professional practice in the State of California. Each State has their own uniqueness as it relates to nursing. When I answer a question,sometimes my answer is irrelevant because the OP is from another state, and their laws are different.
How many times have you read something to the effect of; "I did xyz.....and I want to know if I did it right". Answers come in from all over, and many times the answers reflect something such as "Where I live, we do it this way....or that way" - but you don't know what state (or country) is involved in neither the question nor the answers.
Nursing has it's own culture, and we do the same things differently in each part of the world. I've read about "wooly balls", and "johnnies" and such, but unless you know where the person is from, the semantics get lost in the topic at hand. For example, I've learned that an Irish nurse will call cotton balls "wooly balls".
I think it would be so neat to at least know what state/country is involved in the questions and answers. I find that the similarities and differences that are experienced from state to state/country to country are fascinating to learn about and is valuable information to share with each other.
