It should be mandatory for nurses to practice with a baccalaureate degree .For decades there has been a long standing argument about way nursing is practiced among the different entry level positions . .I have always had the attitude the four year degree was unnecessary .My mind has changed .

To understand the present we must always examine the past . I graduated nursing school in 2003 It was the midst of the nursing shortage .I had every prestigious hospital in Philadelphia and the surrounding areas just about begging for my employment . It was a great time in nursing history for new grads . ...view middle of the document...

She did not discriminate .It did not matter. The class ,color ,education ,position ,creed Bev treated everyone as they were not as intelligent as she .My most vivid memory of Bev was when a man in his early twenties was dropped off the ER doors after being shot .He was screaming in pain .He was shot three times one in the abdomen ,one In the flank area ,and one in the leg .He was screaming out of pain .I remember her looking directly in in eyes yelling at him to shut his mouth .I thought to myself “gee this is not what I thought nursing was going to be like “ In fact the more I thought about it ,I began to notice it was the culture of the hospital .Most of the nurses were very mean to the patients and to each other .It was the culture of the hospital.

I then accepted a position at ST. Christophers Hospital for children .It was a magnet hospital .I was so impressed by the way education was encouraged .I took the position with the agreement that I would work towards my BSN .Although I was so impressed by the committees ,the voice of nursing ,the shared governance ,the patient education ,working with dying kids took a toll on me .I eventually left .The agreement I made with the hospital made an impression on me .
