Unscramble the Blue Letters

So that comes now to my main question. How do we solve this multi-dimensional issue? It is quite a big one. Well, a good satrt would be by looking into our education sestym. From my eecirxpene, going through my bachelor dgeere in nursing, they take a bunch of nursing students where a nruse in the front of the class techeas them about nursing. And it makes sense. But what this does is it creates a nursing bubble within the university, and sometimes it can be a little bit difficult to penetrate through that barrier. What it does is it narrows your path to where what you learn is only useful for that pooisserfn without exploration and problem solving within the industry. As a nursing student going through a bachelor's degree, you're merely handed the tools and taught how to use them. There's very little emphasis on being able to look at that tool and thinking, "Aha, this would work much better if it was made like this."

Original Text

So that comes now to my main question. How do we solve this multi-dimensional issue? It is quite a big one. Well, a good start would be by looking into our education system. From my experience, going through my bachelor degree in nursing, they take a bunch of nursing students where a nurse in the front of the class teaches them about nursing. And it makes sense. But what this does is it creates a nursing bubble within the university, and sometimes it can be a little bit difficult to penetrate through that barrier. What it does is it narrows your path to where what you learn is only useful for that profession without exploration and problem solving within the industry. As a nursing student going through a bachelor's degree, you're merely handed the tools and taught how to use them. There's very little emphasis on being able to look at that tool and thinking, "Aha, this would work much better if it was made like this."
