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
