��_Discover Nursing:��_ The Necessity of Nurses

Funded in part by Johnson & Johnson, the Discover Nursing website is designed to highlight the importance of the nursing profession. The site stresses that the �enrollment in nursing degree programs has dropped seventeen percent over the last five years�, and claims that the number of nurses leaving the profession has also increased. The site explains how these numbers combined with the services nurses provide show that the nursing profession is a necessity that may be lacking in the health care system in the future. The site provides detailed descriptions of numerous types of nursing from Critical Care Nursing and Psychiatric Nursing to Neuroscience Nursing and Opthamalic Nursing. The site also includes personal profiles from men, minorities, and students in the field who explain nursing from a variety of perspectives, making the site a practical resource to a wide range of people interested in nursing.
