More Coverage of the INQRI Annual Meeting

Our recent annual meeting was highlighted in yesterday's edition of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation's e-newsletter Sharing Nursing's Knowledge:

“The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and INQRI have pointed out the deficiencies in the old health care paradigm, including the fact that we don’t use nurses enough,” said Linda Aiken, Ph.D., R.N., F.A.A.N., a professor of nursing at the University of Pennsylvania and a member of the INQRI National Advisory Committee. “We are presenting a new vision: that nurses can do more to improve health and health care. We have studies that demonstrate what that larger role looks like. I would say that we’re already normalizing nurses’ larger role, too,” Aiken said. “Today, you can’t imagine nurses not having an expanded role in health care.”
