Nurses Ask: Where is the respect?


Americans say nursing is the most respected profession, but nurses say their challenges tell a different story. They’re sounding the alarm on staffing shortages, violence in the workplace and racism (63% of nurses say they have personally experienced an act of racism in the workplace).

The American Nurses Association is also fighting an American Medical Association policy recommending advanced practice registered nurses be licensed and regulated by both state medical and nursing boards.

Our guest to tackle these issues is the president of the American Nurses Association, Jennifer Mensik Kennedy, Ph.D., MBA, MBA, RN, NEA-BC, FAAN. Join hosts Mark Masselli and Margaret Flinter for this important conversation.
