  1. Global Health anyone?

    Lifelong learning is important to keep you motivated and stimulated. Congratulations on your achievements thus far! I think you are doing plenty to impact a community. Whether it is one person at a time or a group of people, what you are doing is mak...
  2. ANCC and the APHN-BC

    I too was informed that the reason for the discontinuance of the APHN-BC credential was due to low numbers of applications. I wonder, however, if that will change in the future as population health is growing in popularity. At some point, the public ...
  3. MSN-NP: American Sentinel vs University of Florida

    I personally would stick with UF. I do not believe American Sentinel and UF are in the same league. American Sentinel is not accredited by gold standard regional authorities as UF is. American Sentinel has only been around since 2006 having been orig...
  4. NP program with low gpa

    I understand the need to admit fully qualified people to a program. You want nurses that will do well in studies and pass any applicable certification tests the first time around. But, if your BSN is over ten years old, I don't think a program should...
  5. The Fat Doctor: Can You Trust Out of Shape Health Workers?

    Great information. Great responses. Even though I struggle with weight and empathize with those that do, I feel that I am a role model responsible for helping to set healthy standards. I do agree with the previous poster that quoted Hippocrates that...
  6. What would a single payer system look like?

    The problem with a single payer program in real time is that it will still emphasize sick care. In the U.S., our coding system for diagnoses and procedures is all about sick care. I envision a single payer program as being focused on prevention, pro...
  7. Capitalism vs. Greed: What Has Been the Nursing Impact

    Avid, you make great points. But believe it or not, my concern is not just with who is in the white house (he is just a microcosym of society), it is with the people within this country that seemingly vote their emotions and jaded values. Because wha...
  8. Capitalism vs. Greed: What Has Been the Nursing Impact

    So, if noted authorities in our great U.S.A. says that we were "founded" on Judeo-Christian principles, where did this mentality go when it came to executing healthcare? Was it ever there? Both the ACA and ACHA are based on extreme thought processes...
  9. Capitalism vs. Greed: What Has Been the Nursing Impact

    So Avid, just to put things in a perspective, do you see health care as a priviledge, right, or necessity? I get a bit flustered when someone talks about their rights because that is different then being right, IMHO. Also, are we our "brothers" keep...
  10. Capitalism vs. Greed: What Has Been the Nursing Impact

    There are reportedly reputable sources that offer some information on health spending and health status. The World Health Organization (WHO) is one entity. Below is a link to another entity. U.S. Health Care from a Global Perspective - The Commonwea...
  11. Capitalism vs. Greed: What Has Been the Nursing Impact

    Oh and if anyone responds to my topic, please consider the ACHA that was announced today, which is supposed to be the answer to the ACA. The media accounts I reviewed, did not indicate where nurses and APRNs stood on the subject. We need to make our ...
  12. Capitalism seemingly started off as a good ideal but has gone awry in the U.S. according to my readings. Capitalism has impacted healthcare for a long time. Now greed, or extreme capitalism, seems to be the prevailing force. Health and medical care...
  13. So what's going to happen to health care now?

    OK, I have been on my computer for several hours now, sitting. That is a health risk in and of itself. Should I be punished by paying to be in a high risk insurance pool because my chronic disease(s) and risk factors are exacerbated from long sit tim...
  14. How can I enter the world of Holistic Medicine ?

    It is true that nursing care should be directed holistically, but in this case there are actual graduate nursing programs that specialize in holistic nursing and that is what I was inquiring about. In fact, I have visited several practicing nurse pra...
  15. How can I enter the world of Holistic Medicine ?

    Hi All, I have been an RN for a long time. I am ready to move from disease(d) or sickness care to prevention and wellness. I find that holistic nursing is an area of interest for me. Can anyone tell me the benefits of becoming a holistic nurse practi...
