New to allnurses

  1. Hi everyone I am new to allnurses. I am a RN/BSN in the masters program to become a FNP Decemeber 07. I am really looking forward to moving on. I have been a RN for 8 years now. Started in cardiac telemetry a PCU unit, traveled a bit to Texas, then returned to Missouri where I am living now. I currently am a charge nurse of an emergency department. Our hospital is closing June 07 and opening a new hospital. We currently have 20 ER beds and are going to 32 beds with 8 overflow beds. Wow what a jump. I am looking forward to it, but looking even more forward to NP graduation next December. I start clinicals in January and I hope I do well with them. I am in a class this semester that we have to do discussion postings. I need help. Can anyone help with this question:

    What changes would you like to see in the nursing profession? What improvements have been made since you started in nursing, and where is the profession stuck?

    Any thoughts????
