Your most pressing concerns with the profession and healthcare: Quality of healthcare as it is delivered today is inconsistent and remains fragmented. A more holistic approach is what people want and need. We are still heavily influenced by the pharmaceutical companies who fund much of the research. With all the information about practices complementary to mainstream medicine, neither the insurance industry nor the medical establishment has been open to adjunctive therapies that may be of value to a patients' health. An introduction to complementary therapies should be included in the nursing and medical school curricula. Some medical institutions are beginning to do this, however, we need to do more. As professionals, we must educate ourselves to other types of healing and wellness information that are available to us and that will enable us to serve our fellow humans, completely.

The demands of the professional nurse have always been high. Today the increased reliance on non-professionals in the workplace, make the job of a professional nurse ever more challenging and stressful. Nursing salaries are still not on par with the level of responsibility and skill that many nurses bring to the table. Now, as we have come full circle into a nursing shortage, there is evidence of improved salary and wages as generally reflected in staffing agency rates. Some hospitals and home care agencies have improved in this area. Id say, we still have some gaps to fill in terms of wages, benefits, etc.

Other areas of interest and expertise: Energy Medicine, Women's hormonal health issues, Nutrition, Gardening, Jazz
