Nurse debate VS Doctor

Lately in many website, blog comments found so many negative criticism who addresses to NURSES. A number of criticism speak to Nursing Competency and competition of a profession between Doctor and Nurse especially in Indonesia. Why it's a matter? We acknowledge doctor is old profession who as a Nurse reference and it's true that the Nurse science most is same. The different is time of study and curriculum of study, if medicines finished that graduated till 7 years even 10 years but Nurse is packet study for 3 years(Diploma III) and 4 years (Bachelor of Nursing)till 6 years to get NERS it mean that Development of Nursing is going process.

I feel the debate between doctor and Nurse are be waste time and will be worse the Health Care Indonesia image. We have to study from other country such as US, British, Australia. there is no any Debate doctor VS Nurse in that countries so why it happen in Indonesia?

In US or other countries Nurse and doctor is good partner to build network team with one goal is doing best services to patient, but in Indonesia it's so grateful when still debate always running. We know Nurse is new generation it's mean still need more study and research to improve nursing to become professional, of course need any Health Partner to be support especially doctor. If doctor always blaming to Nurses we know Nurse will not come to professional.

Positive debate is well and will improve any profession,but negative debate is nothing. Indonesia Nursing at that moment is going process to increase level competency. Did you know nursing history in Indonesia, starting in SPK (Sekolah Perawat kesehatan/ school of nursing) as a level senior high school then change to Diploma Of Nursing and bachelor of nursing and lately master of nursing also available. Alteration of study proofed that nursing elevate their skill to become professional. In every work system even in Health care provider needed Team Work, there is no single job will be completely done, so let's to build best Team Work if we want to number one, there is no king lonely will be set up their empire, but succes of their empire is working together.
