Nurse Theresa Brown writes pieces for the New York Times that often convey helpful information about nursing issues. Unfortunately, Brown also shares her incorrect belief that because physicians typically have more power, nurses do and should report to them. In fact, nursing is an autonomous, self-governing profession whose members are ethically bound to challenge physician care plans that are not in patients' best interests.

Nurse-created products and equipment

Create health care products--transform your ideas into products that help nurses deliver better, safer care for patients. Nurse inventor Steve Schmutzer tells you how.

 The IVEA IV pole

Inventor Steve Schmutzer created the IVEA IV pole, which is a great way to transport patients and their equipment quickly and it acts as a walker when the patient wants to make a go of it on their own.

Skin to Skin C-Section

Kimberly Jarrelle, Deborah Burbic and Jess Niccoli created the Skin to Skin C-Section Drape and formed the company Clever Medical to market it. It allows C-Section moms to hold their babies immediately while maintaining a sterile field. See more in the Richmond Times-Dispatch or Woman's Day.

Nurse Grid software

Nurse Grid software was created by nurses. We haven't tried it ourselves, but we are thrilled nurses are creating products for nurses to use since nurses understand nursing the best.
