"provide the highest performing applicants from Ivy League schools with a 6 week medical tutorial and set them loose on our nations inner city hospitals" - Brian De Vale Urges Nurse for America Program to Meet Shortage

TFA and the Fellows program create the illusion that there is no shortage of "cerified" teachers. These folks are considered licensed, thus eliminating the need to pay more to attract more folks into the profession.

I propose a similar program NFA... Nurse for America to deal with the health care crisis.

We will provide the highest performing applicants from Ivy League schools with a 6 week medical tutorial and set them loose on our nations inner city hospitals...we will do this because the nurses and doctors of America have failed our inner city people.

Thus we must fire the [current crop of older] nurses.

Rather than try to understand what decades or in some cases centuries of neglect, public policy and the resulting lack of education about good health choices, alcohol and substance abuse, diabetes, sickle cell, asthma etc...have created, we will blame the doctors and nurses and shut down their hospitals and replace them with CHARTER HOSPITALS!!!!!

Maybe Arne Duncan can be Surgeon General. He is as qualified for that as he is for Sec. of Education. Didn't he sprain his ankle at least once while he was a basketball player? So he understands healthcare...just like he understands education because he went to school.

  1. Great flip on the issue at hand about the TFA invading our schools with their lack of understanding about teaching to our inner city kids.

    I think there should be Pilots for America, Engineers for America, and Lawyers for America. Everyone will attend a 6-week training where you're at risk when taking a flight, the collapse of America's bridges, tunnels, and power grid infrastructure would be at an all time high, and victims would not be able to win any lawsuits because none of the lawyers know what the hell they're doing.

    I know that Arne Duncan would not dare take a plane knowing that his pilot is not highly-qualified!!
