Hi! I need to come up with a problem in the nursing profession so that I can look up 5 research articles that relate and do a review paper. An example would be the nursing shortage problem or effective pain management but everyone does those so Id like to come up with something different. Any creative ideas? Keep in mind that I have to be able to find 5 published research reports on the subject!

other possible issues/ problems:
safe staffing (mandatory nurse-patient ratios such as in california)
california nurses association vs american nurses association (big rift here)
assisted suicide, abortion vs right to life, etc.
adn vs. bsn entry level
maintaining rn competency (continual competency)
family presence during procedures/ codes
"open" visitation in icu's vs. restricted hours for family/ friends
agency nursing vs. regular staffing.
universal health coverage vs. traditional pay for service/ insurance
is health care a right or a privilege?
prescription drug costs- who should pay?
managed care vs. fee for service care
complementary/ alternative healing practices vs. traditional "evidence-based" medicine
mandatory accreditation of schools of nursing
nursing compact or "federal" licensure vs. states independently regulating nursing licensure
new grads in specialty units/ advance areas
online vs. traditional classroom in nursing education
moderator's reminder: these are suggested topics for the op for a paper, and many of these are "hot" issues. please do not hijack this thread by attempting to argue the "pros" or "cons" of any of these topics in this thread. start a separate thread in the appropriate forum to do so. thank you.
