During this unprecedented time of caring for people who have been contracted COVID-19, the value of nurses to patient care is evident.  The value of the nurse in health and healing during a public health crisis needs to be clearly articulated.  This issue discusses and examines the value of nursing in patient care delivery and overall leadership along the continuum.

​Three articles from this issue will be selected for our “Continuing the Conversation" from Nursing Administration Quarterly facilitated by Associate Editor-in-Chief, Dr. Nora Warshawsky.  We hope you will take advantage of this new, and ongoing offering.

Beginning in September, we will be adding a new column to the journal.  “Finance Matters in Nursing Leadership" which is timely and very exciting.  Please email me at [email protected] if you have ideas for future issues or articles.
