After reading cheerfuldoer's thread https://allnurses.com/t51307-10-1.html > about writing to Dr. Phil I thought I would start a thread about what the nurses on this board thing need changing. How about answering the following questions:1. What problems are you confronted with on a regular basis that keeps you from performing the kind of nursing you think is needed today?2. Do you think your institution gives you enough inservices and continuing education to do your job well?3. What one thing would you change right now that might encourage you to stay in nursing? What one thing is keeping you in nursing?4. Is abuse from physicians, co-workers or administrators keeping you from doing your job well?5. Do you believe you have a sya and administration will listen to you without repercussions when you are confronted with a problem that you need admin help with?6. Any other relevent questions you want to add?Get the ball rolling and we will submit to Oprah! I also think Oprah is concerned about how health care is effected by the nursing shortage.
