Today starts Nurses Week. AJN is participating in Lippincott’s Nurses Week initiative, and the entire May issue will be set for open access this week. Additionally, we are reprinting here a wonderful editorial from one of AJN’s former editors, Mary Mallison (click the text below for a larger version, or go to this link for the PDF version, free until June 6). Check in each day as we post voices from nurses from the AJN archives. Enjoy and take pride in our profession, in all that nurses have accomplished, and what nurses are doing today.—Shawn Kennedy, AJN editor-in-chief
