Claiming our Authority March 13, 2006

Some days, I am deeply concerned about nursing: we are not helping in the way that we could be. The average RN does not get to make decisions about the kind, degree and amount of nursing care our patients get. That should be the first item on any staff nurse job description.

We need to claim our authority.

We need to stop using “assessment” and other mealy mouthed words that allow us to avoid talking about authority and responsibility.
