Graduate Project

  1. Hello everyone, I am looking for some comments and feedback on what I am considering doing for my graduate project. I am completing my MSN in Nursing Leadership and Management. My background includes a nursing degree as well as an undergrad degree in Political Science and Education (I couldn't decide what to do forever.) We have to do "something" that would impact a hospital, hospitals, or healthcare in general. This summer I have discussed with a Senator's office the possibility of going to Washington D.C. and working with the Senate HELP (Health, Education, Labor and Pensions) committee. I'd love to connect that with my graduate project so I thought I could work one education nurses, hospitals and others about the recent healthcare bills, pending bills, their implications for nurses and hospitals. It would involve a blog, possibly a website and a twitter account as well as presentations and posting information at the hospital.
    I was wondering what everyone thought of this idea before I presented it to my adviser for consideration.

    • Maybe, but I think you could do better.

    sounds great to me, especially if you include how congress votes on certain topics. ANA provides some info, but they are biased towards Democrat party. Even if I agree with them I always wonder if I am being influenced.

    I've thought about the ANA information but this summer I would be working on the actual legislation before it is passed so I would have first hand knowledge of the process. I just wonder if the college will consider it a good enough project for a program they say prepares us to become CNOs.
