A look at the concerns about The Affordable Care Act from those who work for hospital corps.

This week Michael Lighty, Director of Public Policy for California Nurses Association,  joins us to talk about why he thinks the Affordable Care Act is “Bad Medicine” for nurses. The article, “Bad Medicine” recently appeared in the National Nurse Magazine and states, “…the biggest health reform of our lifetime does little to rein in healthcare corporations and insurers. Instead, it shifts even more in costs onto workers who can’t afford it and, at the same time, threatens the practice of registered nursing.”

Assistant Professor and Program Coordinator, Dr. Enna Trevathan is with us to talk about the MSN/RN Online Program. For more information or to hear our podcast visit

And the usual…80 year old Lynn Ruth Miller is in the house this week with another edition of “In My Day,” discussing depression in old days (how can that be funny?). Also Health Trivia and your email questions. Remember…laughter is always the best medicine
