Impact on Role as a Registered Nurse

From the Paper:

"This topic was selected not only based on the seriousness of the issue's impact on health care in general. More importantly, this topic was chosen because one must be able to understand one's chosen profession from a larger perspective and not merely as an insider. With the coming realization that the health care infrastructure of the Unites States is less than satisfactory and more and more in danger of collapse as the "baby boomer" generation retires, health care professionals, particularly nurses, face an even bigger dilemma: that of ensuring a prosperous future for the next generation of nursing professionals."
