Hi there everyone

I am a Canadian nurse who works Trauma intensive care. I have gone back to school to complete my degree. I am taking a politics in nursing course a and need to write a schoraly paper on nursing issues, provide a background analysis and create a brief for a CEO, director, politician etc. I have a few ideas of what I might write on:

-how can RNs influence health policy change

-how the image of nursing can be enhanced

-recruitment and retention of nurses

I would really appreciate if I could get some other ideas. What do you think is a nursing issue??

Thanks again cubRN

Recruitment versus retention of nurses......how this fails to address a critical shortage of nursing in the workforce, despite BIG bucks spent to recruit nation and world wide.

I'm with SmilingBluEyes. Hospitals have tons of recruitment strategies, but once a Nurses get there, they leave, hence the huge need for retention strategies.

One of the biggest problems seems to be the indivdual patient that is put on each nurse. Management says that they have their budget that they have to stay within. Management is'nt concerned about the pressure, both mentally and physically that is put on the indivdual nurse because we can replace it with a newer version.
