    Hello Nurses! I'm conducting a study with regard to nurses' comfort level regarding end of life care. This is a 32 question survey that will only take 4-6 minutes to complete.

    Influenza vaccine

    It seems to me that there is this stigma and misconceptions when it comes to the flu vaccine. Many people seem to be jaded by getting the vaccine when they believe that the flu shot makes them sick. Also many of the general staff at the hospital are upset that they're basically forced into getting a shot, if not forced to wear a mask throughout the entire flu season. I have people that tell me that they get sick after receiving the vaccine weeks if not months after receiving the shot. Many of the nurses that I work with refuse the vaccine swearing that they get sick after the shot. I know that the vaccine is definitely not full proof as there different strains of influenza so taking the shot seems like a gamble. What are some of your thoughts? Personally I don't have a problem with getting the flu shot.

    Nurses replaced by robots

    I know this is out there but I seem to remember something my old professor said when we discussed the future of nursing. She was saying something along the lines that we had to further our education and attain advanced degrees because in the near future robots could possibly replace nurses. I vividly remember the faces all the nursing students made after that comment. Our professor was definitely quirky and eccentric as you might have already guessed but she was actually quite nice and brillliant in her own little way. Imagine how hard it would be to replace nurses with robots, just the amount of resources that they would have to pour into robots that wouldnt need breaks, food, ect ect. Just the software and hardware to run one of these things and just how cost effective it would be...It kind of be like how people were saying we would have flying cars in the year 2000 and here its 2018.
