  6. Nurse refused to give CPR
    Excellent points! The employee apparently was not clear on how to handle the call and policy and procedures. The 911 dispatcher was in dissarray and did not handle the call well. Many of us, me...

  7. Residencies: doctors have it figured out
    You make a good point SummitRN about the training for physicians and the training for nurses. As the scope of nursing practice expands, nurse residencies make good sense. Patient care has become...

    PMFB-RN, I think that it does not settle well for you to imply that four year nurses are mostly nerdy with limited life experiences. I think what is important is whether the nursing profession is...

  11. Changing the Conversation - Escape Fire
    What I was disappointed by was that there were no nurses, that I saw, presented as experts on health care. We still stand clearly in the shadow of physicians. I think it would have been interesting...

  12. Residencies: doctors have it figured out
    Yes, PMFB-RN, you are correct on certain levels. But, more and more jobs are being automated and outsourced as we write and those jobs will never come back. Currently, we are faced with the health...

  14. Residencies: doctors have it figured out
    Katie, I agree with much of what you write but the nurses are in the hole not only because of external forces such as the AMA but because we refuse to get our act together. I know of several people...

  15. Residencies: doctors have it figured out
    Correct me if I'm wrong, but the pathway to medical education seems to be more typical then the pathway to nursing education. Basic nursing education is very diverse as opposed to basic medical...

    There is information that we don't know about such as the actual policy and procedures of this facility. It is probably being disclosed as I write. When the person talking with the 911 dispatcher...
