Nurse - Family Relationship

Healthcare providers are improving delivery thru the use of mobile treatment initiatives. Nurse practitioners, for example, are used to diagnose and delivery healthcare options to an aging population. The role of the family also increases as healthcare providers come closer to home. Community involvement and recognition aid in healthcare delivery for low-income mothers. Programs that refer low income mother's to long term healthcare providers increases overall healthcare and quality of life reducing child abuse/neglect, smoking and increasing employment for clients. The cost savings to the healthcare system in the longrun also make such programs more appealing.

It could be worse....

Nursing as a profession is generally recession proof. Yes, in a privatized healthcare system less money means less people going to the hospital.....Hospitals make less money and have to layoff nurses/workers.

But, you could be working in Kenya where 25000 were laid off this past week....I bet they weren't even making a worthy wage to start.....

Longterm Health for Short Term $

Any of your kids have access to a school nurse? Not only does a school nurse help with minor maladies, he or she will also play a crucial role in educating little ones. Ranging from nutrition to basic personal healthcare, the long term benefits of a well informed young person will ultimately save the system money down the road. The problem is, how do you convince everyone that the cost of a school nurse is worth the money, especially in tough economic times? Few people even consider simple elements of their lives like nutrition (obesity epidemic anyone?) let alone the importance of healthcare education. The benefits far outweigh the collective cost, but sadly we'll be seeing even more school nurses cut in ensuing years.
