I think the biggest gripe nurses would make is working short. shortages are all over but what really gets me is working short when you have staff but administation thinks we need to cut back. 1) its hard to work short it adds a tremendous amount of stress on someone 2) its not fair to your patients you can not give them the attenction they need because you are stretched too far.

I am enrolled in a Master of Nursing course for the fall. I received my text book in the mail. 'Bedside Matters' a historical synopsis of the history of Canadian nursing. Love this book! Looking forward to this class. The face of nursing is ever changing but I believe an understanding our our history is essential to confronting contemporary challenges to advance the profession (ie: we have to know from whence we came to understand where we are going and how to get there). One of the things that I believe is crucial to advancing nursing is by using our voice -expressing our opinions,concerns- and hearing the voice of other nurses- carefully listening. A spirit of respect and reciprocity is required among all nurses- bedside nurses, nurse educators, researchers, etc-we all have something important to hear and be heard. What do you believe are some important issues facing nursing today? I'd love to hear from you. Thanks
