My name is Dominique Brennan and I recently filled out an application to become part of the student network. I am a member of the American Nurses Association and I am will be a second year nursing student at Duquesne Universuty in Pittsburgh Pennyslvania. I would like to know what the next step in the application process is or how I would go about getting more involved in this organization. I would love to connect with other student nurses from around the world and discuss the healthcare field, in particular the barriers and disparities in which other countries are dealing with. As a future nurse I am interested in public health as well as community education. Here at Duquesne we are guided by a transcultural perspective of nursing care, which I find to be of extreme importance. I feel that I can bring alot of insightful information to the student network in regards to my background in cultural competence as well as my knowledge about the current issues with the U.S. healthcare market. I am interested in what barriers are prevalent in other countries as far as patient care.
