Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The New York State Nurses Association has placed itself in the forefront of the movement across the country to establish minimum standards for professional practice by approving the Resolution on Entry into Professional Practice. Nursing can no longer afford the luxury of lying stagnant worrying about the mechanics of the resolution. We must not lose sight of the fact that baccalaureate preparation as entry into professional practice is essential and long overdue. True it is going to make our work more difficult, but it is certainly possible for faculty producing the largest number of graduates to work through these problems in view of the fact that we are already anticipating them.
