  1. Utah suffering severe nurse shortage

    I'm not sure if you will find the conditions in the states any better. The facility where I work has contracted to bring 30 nurses over from the Phillipines. No one seems concerned that pursing this policy may be depleting an extremely important hu...
  2. CNA Nurses and USWA form Alliance

    According to the AFL-CIO website the USWA is one of the 64 unions it represents. This is getting rather confusing. If you are a member of the CNA are you a member of the USWA automatically and the AFL-CIO too? So does this mean that basically if y...

  5. HMO executive compensation

    Molly, Enjoy your comments and perspective. I attended the ANA RN Lobby day on June 26th. In the meeting we had with Senator Voinovich's staffer, I brought up the Family USA report. I asked what Senator Voinovich's position on the report...
  6. Advice? Warnings? Your thoughts?

  8. Healthcare costs rising rapidly

    feistynurse, Do you have the data to support this statement, "Much of the expense of health care in this country is created by insurance bureaucracy. IT IS NOT NURSE'S SALARIES OR ADEQUATE STAFFING THAT ARE RAISING HEALTH CARE COSTS!!!" I would lo...
  9. Uk nurse shortage a farce!

  14. Capitol Hill
