Nursing faculty make a difference on national scene

An article, titled “The Office of the National Nurse,” by Nursing program instructors Teri Mills and Alisa Schneider was published in the professional journal Policy, Politics, and Nursing Practice. In brief, they argue “the American health care system is in a crisis of soaring costsand epidemics of preventable diseases; poor health literacycontributes to these problems. In spite of the need for change,the system is resistant. Efforts to address the crisis mustfocus on new ways of educating the public to understand theirhealth and how to prevent illness.

Kudos to Teri and Alisa! To read more, the article is on the Web at:
