Why Are Nurses Singing the Blues? Amanda Trujillo, MSN, RN, June 27, 2012 #nurseup #nursefriendly

Why Are Nurses Singing the Blues? Amanda Trujillo, MSN, RN, June 27, 2012 #nurseup #nursefriendly:"I recently read an article written by Debra Wood, RN, a contributor to Nursezone (dot)com. (you can read it here) The topic was a study that reported an alarming percentage of registered nurses who are suffering from depression. I believe she referenced 18% of nurses polled in a study reported symptoms of depression—in comparison to 9% of U.S. adults who have reported having depression. She posed a reasonable question: Why is this happening? Many of us who have worked at the bedside recently or are currently practicing at the bedside can recite at least ten or more reasons easily. My number one response is: the evolution of Corporate Nursing. I’ve blogged about this “new” specialty of nursing that has been developing over the course of years as the healthcare system has become more complex."
