Powerful Profession

Did you see the NYT opinions article, The Power of Nursing?

It’s a busy time (for all nurses, I’m sure), and I didn’t really know how to relate this to some brilliant idea, but thought it was important to share anyway. Makes me proud of the work nurses do. Reminds me of the variety in our work.

I’m a diabetes educator, so I always think about how things can be applied to people with diabetes. I am planning to share this article with my students in the Master of Science in Diabetes Education and Management program at Teachers College Columbia University. I look forward to exchanging ideas about how we could develop similar programs that help people with diabetes.

What else could nurses do along these lines? What other populations could we help?
