During the holiday season children excitedly put together lists of toys they hope Santa will bring. My childhood years are far behind me but I still have a penchant for making lists and believe in the love and generosity of the season. So, here is my 2009 holiday list that Iím dropping into Santaís special letter box this year.
This holiday season, Santa please;
v Bring us innovative strategies to retain the mature nursing workforce,
v Reduce regulatory and reimbursement barriers to nursing practice and allow nurses to practice to the full extend of their education and training,
v Ensure that nurses are appointed to leadership positions on decision-making boards in our healthcare systems, communities, and national policy-making bodies, and
v Help consumers and policy-makers understand that the looming nursing shortage is a critical public health issue.
What would you add to my wish list?
