    Hi Karen. I may have misread the article, but I find that as usual, comfort and appearance is emphasized more with those interested in nursing education then leadership, research, and technical know how. I feel that somehow we nurses need to make it clear that all the above ingredients and more are needed to do well in nursing practice.
