Prospectives for Nursing: A Symposium (May 25, 1979). Nurse Planning Information Series, 15.
Cleland, Virginia; And Others
The future of nursing is discussed in these five papers delivered at a symposium in honor of Jessie M. Scott, Director of the Division of Nursing, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 1964-1979. In the first article, "Old Dreams--New Visions," Virginia Cleland reviews the economics of medicine and calls for a new Surgeon General's Report to guide the development of public/professional relationships in nursing, especially the issue of reimbursing nursing services separately from the general hospital bill. The second article, "Toward l999: Probing Ethical Dilemmas in Nursing's Future," is Mila A. Aroskar's analysis of the concept of justice and ethical issues in health care decisions. In the third paper, "Social and Economic Issues," Luther Christman warns that the level of nursing education must be drastically raised to keep nursing an equal of the other health care professions. The fourth article, "Forces for Forecasting: Biological-Environmental Issues," by Cornelius Kruse, states that environmental regulations must be based on scientific fact and subject to years of research. The final article, "Forces for Forecasting: Organizational Issues," by Dorothy J. Novello, describes the current state of the health care delivery system and poses questions for the future of the nursing profession. (KC)
