This issue of JNCQ focuses on nurses and their critical role in keeping patients safe. Tzeng and colleagues assessed the impact of nurse practitioner (NP) practices on the prescribing rate of potentially inappropriate medications (PIM) across states in the US. The PIM prescription rate was lower in states with full NP practice and lower among NPs than among physicians. Access to NPs and degreed or licensed social workers in nursing homes is needed to improve the quality of care. Other articles share the impact of the pandemic on nurses, their moral distress, and their intent to leave the profession. ​
