Year of the Healthy Nurse

Nurses make up more than half of the health workforce and are responsible for providing the majority of health care worldwide. Current shortages in the availability of nurses are predicted to worsen, in part due to nurses having corresponding aging and chronic disease development in common with the populations they serve. Loss of productivity in the nursing workforce would substantially affect the availability and quality of health care globally.

The Journal of Advanced Nursing has published a virtual issue titled Year of the Healthy Nurse. Articles are free online until November 12, 2017.
