BROWNING, ANNETTE M.

Another Look at Aging

Do Advanced Directives (ADs) require a living will and a proxy? Do ADs have to be in writing? What does the law require? In losing her mother, this author came to greatly value ADs.

Annette M. Browning, MSN, RN, is assistant professor of nursing at Biola University in La Mirada, California. She is currently working on a resolution to the state of California whereby advanced directives would be attached to ones drivers license, social security or selective service card. She attends Salem Lutheran Church in Orange, California.
