Ask a…Nurse!

After the positive feedback from Ask a Doctor, we thought it would be a nice way to pay tribute to the nurses of the world during International Nurse Month to play…Ask a Nurse!  And Megan a nurse in DC has graciously volunteered to take questions.

Here’s our contribution:

What’s the weirdest thing you have seen or heard in a hospital?

How aware are nurses of the healthcare reform? How does their opinion/awareness compare to the majority of doctors [that you can speak of]?

What is the best and worst part about being a nurse?

[full disclosure: my grandma is a registered nurse, so watch it!]

  1. Megan,

    I know you are not a Nurse Practitioner but I was wondering if you have any comments for the following question:

    Other than filling the void left by the lack of general practitioners/ family medicine physicians (MD/DO), do you feel Nurse Practioners will start to branch out into other fields of medicine? Do you feel they might be looking to gain surgical rights anytime in the near future?

  2. It seems nurses would be the best eyes and ears for things others take for granted. What is one common sense yet unlikely change that could be dome in your opinion to improve the state of things? This could have to do with healthcare reform but maybe you are even thinking somehing simpler like mandatory_____ or an incentives to _____?

  3. When did you know you wanted to be a nurse?

    Was there a point where you almost changed your mind and why didn’t you?

    Don’t take this the wrong way…I mean it in an empowering sense, if you knew you wanted to be in medicine, why nursing and I don’t just mean instead of a being a doctor (ie. anesthesiologist, psychiatrist, etc, etc)?

    What is the meanest thing you’ve ever said to a doctor and what is the meanest thing a doctor has ever said to you??
