Dr. Neddie Serra, Chairperson for the Frances M. McLaughlin Division of Nursing recently sat down with Steve Adubato on Wednesday, March 16th to talk about changes within the nursing profession and the focus shifting from treatment of acute illness to educating patients on preventative practices. 
 
During the interview Adubato and Serra talked specifically about asthma and the difference between educating patients beforehand and treating the illness. “There is no cure for asthma at this point so you have to learn to live with the condition and learn how to manage it effectively so that you don’t end up using emergency care which is very expensive. For nurses in general, the focus has always been on educating families and patients on what they can do to help prevent certain conditions from getting worse,” said Serra. 
 
Adubato talked about the change of nursing education as it pertains to preventative practices and the importance of nursing than ever before. “There is so much more that nurses have to do now than when I was in nursing school,” said Serra. “People live longer and many people do not know how to deal with their conditions. It’s the role of the nurse to change that.”
