    What a great series of reports. The finally one features a experienced critical care nurse. What a great discription of what nurses do. What a repudiation of the nurse as pillow fluffing waitress/maid, the doctors handmaiden. The name of the finally episode is "Why I stay". However, it reads to me like a nurse that has about had it.

    Yes, oramar, the text at the website is very informative. You can listen (with RealPlayer) any time you want to the 47:28 minute long program. Many different nurses, administrators and educators from PA, CT and MA talk about different approaches and ideas on the nursing shortage. I finally was able to listen to all of it just now and it is fascinating. The author Suzanne Gordon is heard a few times but there are many different voices in this report.
