After working as an emergency room nurse for 10 years, Wendy Weirbach, BSN, RN, CEN, was looking for a change of pace. She went on to pursue a nursing position at Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, Calif. She immediately fell in love with the job and decided she wanted to spend the remainder of her career at the theme park. We recently spoke with Wendy to learn about this unique nursing position and her experiences providing care for guests, superheroes and princesses alike!

While seasonal influenza (flu) viruses can be detected year-round in the United States, flu viruses are most common during the fall and winter. The flu is serious and can even be deadly, but it’s also preventable – and the flu vaccine has been shown to be one of the best ways to protect against the flu. We spoke with Katherine “Kate” Holbrook, MS, RN, CNS, PHN, program manager of Shoo the Flu, to learn more about this community-based program and the unique role nurses play in decreasing flu-related disease burden within communities.

Public awareness and interest in all things “green” has created a need for nurses to understand environmental issues and their relationship to health with credible, evidence-based information, as well as provide leadership in making the necessary changes in our policies and practices. We spoke with Cara Cook, MS, RN, AHN-BC, who was recently chosen as a 2017 Johnson & Johnson Global Citizen Young Health Leader, about the connection between environmentalism and nursing, and how her background as a nurse has prepared her for advocacy work.
