Nursing vs. The 21st Century Healthcare Industry

I started my journey to becoming a nurse in 1997….I had no idea of what that would look like in 2016 until now. I can remember being taught that patients needed a nurse to….

  • Care
  • Listen
  • Advocate
  • Teach
  • Follow-up

These qualities still live within me but now they are in constant struggle with outside factors like….

  • Money
  • Time Constraints
  • Politics
  • Data collection
  • Short staffing

I realize that I don’t have all the solutions, but I do believe that healthcare was in a healthier state when nurses were allowed to model the 5 foundations we were taught in nursing school instead of being beamed into the 21st century healthcare industry that a majority of doctors, nurses, and patients don’t feel comfortable with nor do they trust.
