5 Weeks

Ack! Only 5 more weeks of school to go until I have my BSN!

Yet, I will never stop learning.
We have been discussing the Future of Nursing Report put out by the Institute of Medicine.
One of their recommendations is that nurses receive higher education.
This means that AA prepared nurses get those BSN's.
BSN nurses get their master's.
And more nurses will achieve their doctorates.

We watched this little video tonight in class.
It is interesting to see the changes that have happened within the profession of nursing.

I know that I want to go on for more education at some point but I am ready for a bit of a break.
I can't believe that I am so close to this goal.
Just 5 more weeks!
And on that note ~ I really need to get going on a couple of papers.
I want to finish strong~

Future of Nursing recommendations:
As a result of its deliberations, the committee formulated four key messages that structure the discussion and recommendations presented in this report:
  1. Nurses should practice to the full extent of their education and training.
  2. Nurses should achieve higher levels of education and training through an improved education system that promotes seamless academic progression.
  3. Nurses should be full partners, with physicians and other health professionals, in redesigning health care in the United States.
  4. Effective workforce planning and policy making require better data collection and an improved information infrastructure.
