Nurses in all settings are doing important work and making a difference, and we want to highlight them and the good work they do. AJN’s Profiles column highlights the diverse ways in which nurses contribute their leadership, compassion, and talent to enhance patient care directly in their institutions or through innovations in policy, research, or education that have had far-reaching impact.
Our profiles include:
- Mary Peroutka, founder of the Rising Hope Perinatal Hospice Program
- Linda Siminerio, a pioneering diabetes educator who chairs the federally funded National Diabetes Education Program
- Sylvia Trent-Adams, the chief nurse officer of the U.S. Public Health Service
- Laurel Edinburgh, creator of an intervention program to help runaway teen girls
We’re inviting suggestions for nurses to feature in Profiles. If you know of a nurse who is doing great work, let us know. Or if you have developed an interesting or unique program, tell us about it. […]
