Dispatches from the Alabama Tornado Zone
Last summer, Susan Hassmiller, PhD, RN, FAAN, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Senior Adviser for Nursing, wrote an informative and thoughtful series of posts for this blog as she spent her summer vacation retracing the steps of Florence Nightingale in England and Turkey.
Now she’s sending us dispatches from closer to home—Alabama, to be exact, which was recently devastated by a series of tornadoes. Susan has gone there to volunteer with the Red Cross and also to gather information on this crisis, and her daily on-the-go entries will be published one by one on the AJN blog home page and also collected here (the editing will be light, with the goal being to provide Susan a platform to convey the immediacy of her experiences).—Jacob Molyneux, senior editor/blog editor
