EDITORIAL : On Being a Professional

Over the past couple of months I have had the privilege of attending the national meetings of three different professional nursing organizations including the ANN meeting held this year in Phoenix. I was impressed to say the least. Despite changes in the global economy and, more particularly in hospital funding models, nurses took time from their busy work and personal schedules to attend these meetings. In fact over 800 nurses filled the ballrooms and exhibit halls in Phoenix. These nurses took time to carefully listen to speakers, often lining up at the end of a session to ask more questions, and spent hours reviewing the poster presentations and speaking with the authors. They roamed the exhibit hall looking at all the products that promised to help them provide better patient care and gathered at the breakfast round tables to converse with colleagues and share ideas.
