  1. living with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease: insiders' perspectives. Danielle D. Fraser MS, RN, CNS, BC, (know what RN and CNS is) Carolyn C. Kee PhD, RN, Ptlene Minick PhD, RN.

    I've been asked to critically review the article using a framework for the evaluation of research papers.

    if you havent can you just tell me what you think the article is about from the title?

    and does anyone know what emeritus means?

    MS: Master of Science
    BC: See following post
    PhD: Doctor of Philosophy
    RN: Registered Nurse

    Emeritus: One who is now retired but still holds the title of the position previous to retirement. Professor Emeritus means an officially retired professor that still is active in the organization.

    I have not read the article, but I would assume it is about "what it's like to live with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease".

    BC: Business Computing (I think it means that anyway. A blend of Computing Science and Business Administration)
    Actually usually for an RN BS stands for "board certified" meaning they have completed a certification exam for a specialty.

    Hi Shannyn, just logged on to allnurses.com for first time. I'm reviewing this article at moment. Have you got any advice for me. I personally think it doesn't really bring anything new to people with COPD. Is this what you thought?
