Diana Mason's May editorial, "Which Nurse Do You Want?" is the perfect topic for Nurses' Day. As a clinical nurse specialist (CNS) with a master's degree in nursing, I have not yet found a doctoral program in line with my nursing philosophy.


In my experience, patients and families are well informed and want knowledgeable nurses. As a CNS, I hope to act as a mentor for the nurses who will one day care for me. I look forward to my nursing journals, although I have trouble finding time to read them. I am not sure that nursing education legislation will pass easily.
