10 Ways a Ron Paul Presidency would Affect Health Care

I found this discussion about Ron Paul in another blog. I find Dr. Paul very interesting based on my experiences dealing with state government as an administrative lawyer. Based on those experiences I am in favor of anyone that supports LIMITED governmental involvement in our lives. Go have a look at "10 Ways a Ron Paul Presidency would Affect Health Care" because Dr. Paul has some interesting ideas. Some of his ideas are a direct reflection of the issues he has faced as a health care provider.

Nursing Board Investigations-Helpful Hints

There is a very good article in the December 2007 "Nursing That Works" newsletter. In the article, "When the State Board Calls: "Part I: Guidance from Nurse Attorney, Latonia Denise Wright" by Diane E. Scott, RN, MSN, Ms. Wright is asked multiple questions about Board of Nursing Investigations. The recommendations are straightforward and helpful.

Ms. Wright points out that nurses should strongly consider hiring an experienced attorney to assist them before the BON because the adverse effects of representing oneself can be detrimental. The next issue will feature an interview with an Executive Director of one of the BONs.
