People don't go into nursing because they find out that nurses are expected to take care of all patient needs "in half the time" just like Patricia Armenta, RN supervisor for Home Health Care, said on the Nov. 3 issue.

It is relatively common knowledge that women aged over 35 years run a higher risk of having a baby with a chromosomal abnormality, such as Down’s Syndrome, an issue that directly concerns me at age 36 and 15 weeks into my second pregnancy.
I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed Larry Leeds article "Isn't Everyone a VIP." This really struck a chord with me. Twice. First, it rarely happens at our hospital, but once in a while somebody is designated a VIP. Anyone who would think this necessary has no understanding whatsoever of nursing and nursing philosophy. I have worked in the hospital setting for over a decade and in that time have worked with exactly two nurses who did not consider every single patient a VIP. And neither of those nurses lasted very long.
