Nurses Can, and Should, Play a Larger Role in Meeting the Needs of Patients

This past weekend, Cathryne A. Welch and Robert O'Connell coauthored an op-ed piece in the Times Union, describing the numerous roles nurses can take on to reduce the primary care workforce shortage as well as other recommendations made in the IOM's Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health report. The two authors, both of whom are leads of the Future of Nursing: New York State Action Coalition, clearly explained the recommendations made in the report and attempt to garner public support of these initiatives.
