I love Dansko but and your new heart peace...great!!! but the shape of the arc needs to be reshape...like a boot...

We also like to know if we can trade for $20.00 and get a new pair...so the company can recycle...a good idea to keep up with your new styles...

I think the best thing to happen in the field of nursing is technology, computers are a very important part of nursing. Easy to chart -- to referencing different parts of the the proffesion. Glad to be a nurse.

Becoming it's own field and the independence that nurses now have in patient care. We can make a difference as advocates and educators of patients. It isn't just doctors orders. There is a lot of autonomy and responsibility. The field continues to grow and expand opening a world of unlimited possibilities to all nurses. We continue to learn everyday. There is never a dull moment.

Diversified!! I have been  nursing for more than 26 years, and with that experience in many different areas in nursing~ expanded my career and made me whole.  I had chosen a field that compliments me that I am proud to be a NURSE!

I think the best thing that has happened to nursing is that they use computers to track information instead of the old paper chart

The profession of nursing has and continues to make great strides. I believe that the most important thing to happen in our field is the recognition of our talents and skill sets. Physicians are respecting our role as a member of the team caring for a patient. Our opinions and thoughts are respected and valued. This has led to an increase in our autonomy via protocols. I believe we are respected more. I am also pleased that bullying is being recognized. It happens in all levels of management as well as on the unit. It is widespread and can be damaging to a person's career.

Recognizing nursing's needs, as well as our strenghts, especailly, bullying.   The first time I heard the expression "RN's eat their young", it was from a nurses' aid.   I wonder how many other allied professionals and professionals hold on to this belief.  Nursing isn't the only field that "bullying" happens in.   %0d%0a%0d%0aSo as nurses, we are educating ourselves and others.  As always, we lead the way...

The most important things that have happened in the field of nursing are:The level of autonomy that nurses have achieved, how the nursing profession has expanded into so many different areas, (i.e. informatics) and the development of standards for nursing.
