Hi, glad you've started this. I can think of a few other categories you might want to consider adding:

1) LTC/SNF/ALF/whatever you want to call it--residential care settings--we're isolated enough out there in the non-acute world!

2)Nurses going back to school for advanced degrees

3) AP nurses

4) Academic nursing (not just students, but what about us faculty/researcher types?)

OK, that's enough for now :)

These are great ideas for new forum sections!!!!! Since I fit into two of them, I'm embarrassed I didn't think of them! LOL! :)

Long term care - residential: that's a whole different world in itself and I'd love to see it added!

Apparently, I have been designated a "Super Moderator", and as soon as I figure out what that means, I'll let you know!:D

However, I do believe that THE moderator is reading and should have your suggestions up soon. I shall have to contact him via telepathy (okay, email)....

Is "women's health" supposed to encompass fertility nursing, too?

Hi Geena!

I would think that would fall under "Women's Health". What do you think, should it be its own category?:)

Maybe it would be helpful to put subheadings underneath the headings? Like Hospice could potentially include hospital palliative care? And women's health could include ob/gyn, fertility nursing?

Or maybe that would clutter things up.

Being on "this" side of nursing is so different than being on "that" side of nursing. I'd like to hear some views about what it's like being the patient instead of the nurse.

My Own Woman,

Great suggestion! The moderators are going over revisions and the new suggestions right now.

Wanted you to know we saw your idea! Welcome to Nursing Voices, btw!

I remember being in the hospital as a patient. It was a very eye opening experience. I think this category is a great idea.

Thanks Marachne for creating a thread about this! I think it would be pretty neat if we had a "Nursing News" section. That way, we can share some of the most recent news around the world that relates to nursing. A "Male Nursing" section would be pretty cool too. Just some suggestions I'm throwing up. ;)
