The traveling exhibit consists of photographs that were submitted for a contest created to highlight the importance of nursing, promote nursing as a career, and contribute to a historical record of nursing in the American Journal of Nursing.
Twenty-four photos were selected from nearly 200 entries in our 2005 photo contest from professional and amateur photographers from around the world. Twenty-six photos were selected in our 2007 photo contest. These photographs were exhibited May 6-31, 2005 and May 9-June 5, 2007 at New York University in New York City to coincide with Nurses Week. The judges included were professional photographers and members of AJN’s editorial and design team. The winners and “best” photos have appeared on AJN covers in the past three years.
