The Quintessential Nursing Population

Collins, Amy M. Editor

Collapse Box


A past nursing model for ‘chronically critically ill’ patients provides lessons for health care today.

As part of its Raise the Voice campaign to showcase nurses who are key players in transforming health care, the American Academy of Nursing has identified nurses they call edge runners—“practical innovators who have led the way in bringing new thinking and new methods to a wide range of health care challenges.” This is the fourth in AJN’s series of profiles of these nursing innovators. Read and be proud of what nurses can accomplish.
