                     REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION (RFD)
             unmoderated group sci.med.nursing.emergency
              unmoderated group sci.med.nursing.student
   unmoderated group sci.med.nursing.misc (renames sci.med.nursing)

This is a formal Request For Discussion (RFD) for the reorganization
of the nursing group in the sci.med.* hierarchy.  This is not a Call
for Votes (CFV); you cannot vote at this time. Procedural details are
below.

Newsgroup lines:
sci.med.nursing.emergency	Emergency nursing and nursing care.
sci.med.nursing.misc	Science, art, and practice of nursing.
sci.med.nursing.student	Student nursing and nursing care.

RATIONALE: all groups

Sci.med.nursing is an unmoderated newsgroup dedicated to the art and
science of nursing. It currently generates approximately 200 messages
per day.

The group has been ripe for a split for some time now, many users have
asked for a separate group for the discussion of topics related to
emergency nursing and another for student nursing.

CHARTER: sci.med.nursing.emergency

A discussion group dedicated to emergency nursing. Possible topics include:

        * Triage
        * Emergency life support
        * Pediatric trauma
        * General ER techniques and patient care
        * Hospital ER policies
        * Continuing emergency education

Commercial ads not _directly_ related to emergency nursing are not allowed.

END CHARTER.

CHARTER: sci.med.nursing.student

A discussion group dedicated to student nursing. Possible topics include:

        * Nursing education
        * Problems faced in student clinical settings
        * Licensing exams
        * Employment questions / Specialization queries
        * Nursing research
        * Advanced nursing studies : undergraduate, graduate, nurse
practitioner, and beyond.

Commercial ads not _directly_ related to student nursing are not allowed.

END CHARTER.

CHARTER: sci.med.nursing.misc

Replacing sci.med.nursing, this group would be dedicated to all other
forms of nursing and nursing care. Possible topics are all but
unlimited and may include:

        * Nursing theory
        * Practical nursing applications
        * Sexual harassment / violence in the workplace
        * Clinical problems / solutions
        * Medication problems / solutions
        * Ethical issues in nursing

        Commercial ads not _directly_ related to nursing are not allowed.

END CHARTER.

MODERATOR INFO: all groups

Currently, sci.med.nursing is unmoderated. We have had little
problem from spammers and prefer to deal with them by private email
complaints. Therefore all three proposed groups would have no moderation.

END MODERATOR INFO.

PROCEDURE:

This is a request for discussion, not a call for votes.  In this phase
of the process, any potential problems with the proposed newsgroups
should be raised and resolved.  The discussion period will continue
for a minimum of 21 days (starting from when the first RFD for this
proposal is posted to news.announce.newgroups), after which a Call For
Votes (CFV) will be posted by a neutral vote taker.  Please do not
attempt to vote until this happens.

All discussion of this proposal should be posted to news.groups.

This RFD attempts to comply fully with the Usenet newsgroup creation
guidelines outlined in "How to Create a New Usenet Newsgroup" and "How to
Format and Submit a New Group Proposal".  Please refer to these documents
(available in news.announce.newgroups) if you have any questions about the
process.

DISTRIBUTION:

This RFD has been posted to the following newsgroups:

news.announce.newgroups, news.groups, sci.med.nursing, bit.listserv.snurse-l

HOW TO VOTE:

* Extract the ballot from the CFV by deleting everything before and after
  the "BEGINNING OF BALLOT" and "END OF BALLOT" lines.  Don't worry about
  the spacing of the columns or any quote characters (">") that your
  reply inserts.  Please, DO NOT send the entire CFV back to me!

* Mark the ballot and then MAIL it to: < [email protected] >
  Just "replying" to this message should work, but check the "To:" line.

* In order to properly record your vote, please provide your REAL NAME and
  indicate your desired vote in the appropriate locations inside the ballot.

* Examples of how to properly indicate your vote:

  [ YES     ]  example.yes.vote
  [ NO      ]  example.no.vote
  [ ABSTAIN ]  example.abstention
  [ CANCEL  ]  example.cancellation

* DO NOT modify, alter or delete any information in this ballot!
  If you do, the voting software will probably reject your ballot.

| 1ST CALL FOR VOTES: sci.med.nursing reorganization

IMPORTANT VOTING PROCEDURE NOTES:

Standard Guidelines for voting apply.  One person, one vote.  Votes
must be mailed directly from the voter to the votetaker.  Anonymous,
forwarded or proxy votes are not valid.  Votes mailed by WWW/HTML/CGI
forms are considered to be anonymous votes.

Vote counting is automated.  Failure to follow these directions may
mean that your vote does not get counted.  If you do not receive an
acknowledgment of your vote within three days contact the votetaker
about the problem.  It's your responsibility to make sure your vote
is registered correctly.  Duplicate votes are resolved in favor of
the most recent valid vote.  Addresses and votes of all voters will
be published in the final voting results post.

The purpose of a Usenet vote is to determine the genuine interest of
persons who would read a proposed newsgroup.  Soliciting votes from
disinterested parties defeats this purpose.  Please do not distribute
this CFV.  If you must, direct people to the official CFV as posted
to news.announce.newgroups.  Distributing pre-marked or otherwise
edited copies of this CFV is generally considered to be vote fraud.
When in doubt, ask the votetaker.
