Debate topic for a frazzled nursing student :'(

  1. perspectives in nursing class...bad
    we have a debate to do...we got assigned topics and our positions on them( which i don't think is fair because how canyou argue something you don't believe in??) but that's beside the point. okay. here it is.

    I have to argure that I feel nurses should not need any education after they graduate.

    No inservices, extra classes, nothing.
    How can i do this? i know nursing is a field where you have to keep gaining education as you go!
    If anyone has any thoughts on this, please please let me know.
    you can email me @
    or Instant message me at LeAnn7481

    Thank you guys!

    Wow. That's a toughie. "No inservices, extra classes, nothing." Is that really what they mean? Is that the EXACT wording of the topic? Can you weasel it so that you can argue that nurses should not be REQUIRED to do continuing ed? Then you might take the approach that learning and keeping current is a natural part of the job.

    If I was doing the report, I'd use the current NURSING SHORTAGE.
    If we don't have the staffing to care for patients then how could we possibly attend classes or seminars? etc,etc,etc...
