September 2025-
It’s time to say goodbye to her ‘virtual’ nursing cap. Dr. Jade Marciano is ready to hang up her stethoscope, finally. After all, she had been working as a nurse for 42 years now.Dr. Jade chuckled at the thought of one clueless senatorial candidate who had tried to belittle the nurses in her native country by implying that the student nurses could get by with limited education. Her concept of “room nurses” had angered the Filipino nurses, and she eventually lost the election in 2013. Now, in 2025, the transformed nursing workforce had fulfilled its promise to take a much-deserved equal acknowledgement from the public. Somehow, the world had embraced the new and expanded roles of the nurse. An empowered nurse.
