January 2010 cover: 'Two Does' by Jackie Robidoux

Jackie Robidoux, a staff nurse on the orthopedic unit at Elliot Hospital in Manchester, New Hampshire, is also an amateur tracker and an award-winning nature photographer. This month we feature her photographs both on our cover and in Art of Nursing.

“I love raw beauty,” Robidoux told AJN recently. To capture the image of the two does shown here, she waited for more than two hours on a hillside in 10-degree weather. “When you’re out there a long time like that, you start to see in a different way. You start to see everything around you.” Such patient alertness has also served her well as a nurse. To learn more, read On the Cover and visit her Web site.

If you’re a visual artist or a poet, we invite you to think about submitting to Art of Nursing. For details, read this blog post; guidelines can be found here. Still have questions? Write to me (I’m the department coordinator) and I’ll do my best to answer them: sylvia.foley@wolterskluwer.com.
