That sounds like me, although I don't think I will go back into research for a while after I finish. I have an interest in toxicology and disease process because of my last degree, so I'll see what I can find.

That is one of the great things about the research community, they all love to hear what each other are doing.

Well we are becoming a global world and as more research is done anywhere in the world it is great that it is available to everyone.

Yeah, and seem to be very welcoming to even newbies. I remember the first time I decided to go up to a "big name" after a presentation. I was shocked that they wanted to talk to me, but it was very, very nice. (They like to hear what you're doing, but they also love it when you say you've been following what they've been doing).

However I would add one caveat to the "love to hear what each other are doing." The same person I was talking about before, Lillian Nail, who has done a huge amount of research on cancer tx symptoms, particularly fatigue, said that at gatherings of symptom researchers, no one really likes to hang out with the "poo people" (constipation and diarrhea)

ooooooo, your response was fast this morning, I only posted about 10min ago.

I don't think I would be hanging out with for long either. I did my time handling stool samples and testing them. But if you want to know what people put in, you have got to see what people put out.

BSN's have more management training. They are poised to be placed into management positions. And they have 4 years of college which includes more academics than an AD program.

AD nurses are great at clinical skills and usually very good patient care nurses.

Or that is the way it is here in the USA/Alabama--way down south!!

As a recent graduate (December!) of a Clinical Nurse Leader (CNL) program, I can shed a little light here. The goal of the CNL is to plrovide a higher level of education at the bedside. This is not a management track. The program I was in was full-time for 18 months, and provided a Masters degree at the end. The curriculum is focused on evidence-based practice, research, and critical thinking. No more doing it "like it's always been done".

I'm currently working as a staff nurse. I can't use the CNL certification at this point because it's too new to be recognized/accepted. BUT, the fact that I've been working less than 3 weeks and have received much feedback about the ability to see beyond the normal new grad point of view is testament to the vision of the CNL. I know I'm not at the level of other nurses with more clinical experience yet, but I have the grounding for quickly gaining that perspective and ability more rapidly due to the education I received.

I hope that helps,


Markie
