Tired of the "just a nurse" mentality that some have. Our input will be critical #rnchat 3/23/2010 12:49
  11. 11. bthenextstep: @onlinenursing absolutely! the problem is the immediacy of results would not be there to justify the cost/benefit analyses. #rnchat 3/23/2010 12:50 EllenRichter: T1 If RNs R going to take role of front line health care managers we must raise the bar to at least BSN, if not more, for those RNs #RNchat 3/23/2010 12:50 onlinenursing: @JoeCascio Good point.Many of my pts B4 were cashpay (no health insurance).Clinic faird better w/this & it cost these pts less 4 h/c #RNChat 3/23/2010 12:50 EllenRichter: Isnt it great? >> RT @onlinenursing: #RNChat is meeting of the minds, trying to openly discuss real issues in real time. #RNchat 3/23/2010 12:51 ocdgirl2000: #rnchat T1 but the money that was going to be used for school loans will now be used for health care.right? 3/23/2010 12:51 tersenurse: @EllenRichter I agree 2 some extent but i'm concerned that there aren't enough rns to take on the influx of pts we are about to get #rnchat 3/23/2010 12:51 maryannagordon: @EllenRichter T1 completely agree. We have to elevate our entry level of education commensurate to the level of expertise required #Rnchat 3/23/2010 12:52 RNconsult: Hey this Doctor has a Point....Check this out !!! http://hbr.org/2010/04/turning-doctors-into- leaders/ar/pr #RNchat 3/23/2010 12:52 onlinenursing: @bthenextstep neither is a lifetime of HTN/DM meds (not a quick fix either) #RNChat 3/23/2010 12:52 cyclingwidow: T1 be interested to see how this all ties in with ARRA/HITECH also #rnchat 3/23/2010 12:52 ocdgirl2000: #rnchat T1 what was it, in the healthcare bill tied to educational money, regarding the cost of healthcare? 3/23/2010 12:53 onlinenursing: @tersenurse Hopefully the influx will be in primary care and out of the ER's and hospitals where the uninsured have been coming #RNChat 3/23/2010 12:53 bthenextstep: @onlinenursing preaching to the choir on that one. I'm with ya. just a matter of getting other on the same page. #RNChat 3/23/2010 12:54 bthenextstep: @maryannagordon @EllenRichter I would agree. higher education for all nurses is a key ingredient. #Rnchat 3/23/2010 12:54 onlinenursing: @EllenRichter Yep #RNChat is totally great. 3/23/2010 12:55
  12. 12. tersenurse: @onlinenursing you don't think that with the influx to primary care we will catch more illnesses that need hospitalization too? #rnchat 3/23/2010 12:55 nursekama: It will. RT @cyclingwidow: T1 Improved access to primary care should drive up demand for Advanced Practice Nurses (APNs) as well #rnchat 3/23/2010 12:55 EllenRichter: @onlinenursing LOL I feel like a broken record. But I believe educational rise is paramount in dissolving our current RN stigma #RNchat 3/23/2010 12:56 oncnurse66: RT @bthenextstep: I would agree. higher education for all nurses is a key ingredient.Yes but with pay to match #RNchat 3/23/2010 12:56 Nerdnurse: RT @EllenRichter: @onlinenursing LOL I feel like a broken record.

Will definitely read this...great discussion happening! #rnchat 3/23/2010 12:59 oncnurse66: @tersenurse mine does too but it is insignifigant compared to the cost of my BSN #RNchat 3/23/2010 12:59
  13. 13. tersenurse: @onlinenursing good point #rnchat 3/23/2010 12:59 onlinenursing: @bthenextstep No money in researching anything but drugs and surgery.
