Do you feel the availability of Patient Educational Materials on the WWW would be beneficial: Yes

Nursing School you attend if applicable: TCU - Texas Christian University - BSN
Where do you work: Service Agency
Do you carry a personal malpractice insurance policy why or why not: No. No particular reason. The more money that is available the more money you could be sued for
Your most pressing concerns with the profession and healthcare: Nursing has traditionally been too task-oriented. When nursing academia introduced the nursing process to facilitate reason and order in our nursing care we proceeded to view it as more paper and responded by making it into check lists and multiple choice or short answer events. We missed the point. Now as a result of this task-orientation and with the advent of managed care and all that THAT implies we find our tasks being performed by a host of technicians and others who learn how to do tasks not when and why. I think nursing missed its golden opportunity to be professionals when it rejected reason for instruction education for training. Also see last weeks New York Times article on errors and personal liability. If nurses cant see themselves as part of a broad system then they end up worse than proverbial cogs in a wheel they end up as cogs without a wheel in which to function efficiently. I see these two phenomena as part of the same issue.
What attracted you to the field of Nursing: I thought it would be an exciting place to use my intellect.
