There has never been a better time to be a nurse. Not only do nurses have the opportunity to touch lives every day, they are at the forefront of an exciting health care revolution. In this fast-paced, technologically driven world, patients rely on nurses to make sense of our complex health care system. The nurse is the primary conduit between the patient and medicine, providing care, comfort and compassion.
