At the 2019 World Health Assembly, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared 2020 as the "Year of the Nurse and the Midwife," a move to reinforce the essential roles of these clinicians in improving care around the world and achieving the sustainable development goals. In this coming year of focus on nursing, AJN will highlight nurses' work each month on our cover, in print, and on our social media pages. Here is a selection of articles, blog posts, and podcasts on the Year of the Nurse and the Midwife.
