To celebrate National Nurses Week 2016, the Johnson & Johnson Campaign for Nursing’s Future focused on highlighting the impact that nurses have on their communities, as well as supporting the future of nursing through student nurse scholarships. Today and every day, the Campaign continues to support nurses through its many initiatives and thank them for all they do to help and heal.

"I believe that nursing is a field that doesn’t completely click until you practice it -- no matter how much studying and reading you do. In school you learn the textbook, but in practice, no patient is 'textbook.' You realize that your patients are human, and they have an entirely different range of needs and personalities that should be considered in your care." - Kimberly Appelbaum, RN

Nurses using mobile technology at the bedside is the topic this month on the Nursing Notes Live podcast. We look at nurses on the front lines of technology in bedside patient care.

Pursuing advanced nursing education can be daunting at first, but hearing firsthand from a nurse who earned advanced degrees can help ease that fear. We sat down with Michelle Dynes, RN, MSN, Ph.D., nurse epidemiologist at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, to discuss her nursing journey. Over the past 23 years, Dynes has earned her Bachelor's, Master's and Doctorate degrees and found her passion in public health nursing.

“Nurses are used to being on the front lines of patient care in communities, and we now have the opportunity to connect with patients in their online communities by logging in and sharing our voice online." - Pamela Ressler, BSN, RN, HN-BC
