allnurses appreciation post

  1. I really enjoy this board. It's wonderful to come to a nurses's board that is full of support, education, and solid advice -- all by fellow nurses. Some of the questions really make me think -- and are such a great review of my nursing practice -- at times I even have to do some review/research. It's a great way to share advice. It's also interesting to learn of the similarities we face in health care -- regardless of where we practice. I'm rambling ... I'm tired ... but just want you to know that I think allnurses should grant CEUs!

    Good luck and God bless you all.

    I have to agree with all the posts...I come here to learn new things, (can never know enough, vent my frustrations, and just read what other nurses are talking about. It makes me feel that we are all going through the samethings, even thousand of miles apart....

    Excellent site and a wonderful supportative community here. It amazes me how quickly the member rally to each others aid.

    I also believe that this site may have an impact on the profession of nursing in unexpected ways. One of the more obvious to me is the sharign of information ACROSS disciplines. Witness the responses to threads on difficult patients where nurses form ED, general, OB and Psych have all contributed answers. This can only generate new bodies of knowledge.

    I would not be surprised to find Masters and Doctorate students lurking here writing papers such as "A phenomenological review of nurses coping strategies in relation to behavioural problems".

    There are many aspects of nursing which are either not researched or poorly researched and recommendations for evidence based practice have had to come from expert opinion. Here we have a forum where this can occur without the finger pointing of "you should KNOW that." Although the answers generated here do not have the (scientific) validity of say the Joanna Briggs Institute of Evidence Based Practice but on the other hand it allows us to ask ANY question and explore the boundaries of nursing knowledge.
