A Call at Nurses Week

Johns Hopkins School of Nursing Dean Patricia Davidson writes, “In Florence Nightingale’s day, quality, hygienic, patient-centered nursing was in short supply. Patient safety and quality of care have come a long way since then. But the shortage of nurses remains an alarming issue, one that will run through our celebration of National Nurses Week, which ends appropriately on Nightingale’s birthday, May 12”
