Hi everyone! I feel almost like I'm intruding here. I'm a 16-year old junior in high school. Because I want to go into nursing once I graduate (specifically pediatrics, maybe in ER or oncology), I've decided to do my Junior research paper (the funnest part of high school! *laugh*) on nursing; more specifically, the importance of nursing in the health care system (more specifically, in a hospital setting.. did you notice i'm into specifics *grin*). A good part of my grade, besides the actual written paper, is the research I do. I need 10-14 sources, including, but not limited to, 1 or 2 webpages, 2 video/media resources and personal research. I was hoping you all could help me with that last component. If it isn't too much trouble, could you please copy and paste the following questions and answer them? You can email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or post them here. Thank-you so much! And if anyone knows of any good webpages about nursing I could visit, or any movies that discuss nursing, please let me know!
You only have to answer the questions you want to answer.
Where do you live?:
How long have you been involved in nursing?:
When did you decide you wanted to become a nurse and why?:
What specific area do you work in?:
How is your and the other nurses' realtionship with the doctors (good/bad communication, how does this affect the patients' care)?
Have you ever experienced burn-out?:
Do you think nurses' salaries are too low in general (or personally)?:
What do you think of nurses going on strike (unfair to patients, necessary to fight against staffing and salary cutbacks, etc.)?
How do you think nursing is viewed by the general public?
How would you define nursing?
Anything else you'd like to add to help me write a truthful and effective paper?:
Thank-you so much! I can not tell you how grateful I am
