Who's Leading Nursing?Johnson, Shelly RNAJN The American Journal of Nursing: April 2009 - Volume 109 - Issue 4 - p 12 doi: 10.1097/01.NAJ.0000348569.12684.3a Letters Author Information Vancouver, WA America has been stuck in a "sick care" pattern for far too long. Prevention needs to be the focus now. Elevating the position of the CNO in the USPHS, and using a title people recognize ("national nurse"), will let the public know that our government is serious about disease prevention. Our nation's health depends on a positive change. This idea could be it. Shelly Johnson, RN Vancouver, WA© 2009 Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, Inc.
