    This is my thought as well. The root of the problem is the mentality that we are "just nurses". This mentality is held by many doctors, nurses and staff that implement policy regarding nurses. The mentality needs to change before any other meaningful change can take place. The view provided a flame to light a fire of understanding what our root problem is.

    NursChu and NutmeggeRN like this.

    I went to school with someone who failed out of nursing school the first quarter. I ran into her when she reapplied and she made a comment about not needing to do well in school since she was just going to be a "school nurse anyway". I had to let her know that with that attitude I hoped none of my kids ended up in a school she worked for. School nurses rock!
