    Anyone seen our research nurses? Susy K was into that...but haven't seen her for awhile....anyone know where she's hanging out? I'll check the hot political threads...

    I will also visit their nursing thread and get their response.

    I'd love to hear of studies already done regarding this topic (if any) , then we could swamp administration with them...LOL...I know there are studies linking #'s of RNs to better outcomes but I think we need more definitive proof of the satisfaction link if we are to prove our point.

    I guess we could contact master's programs and suggest studies like this be done...any more ideas guys and gals???
