Healthcare Leadership, Policymakers Should Listen to Nurses, Says Gallup Survey
Nurses must find new ways to contribute to the solutions—especially in areas such as healthcare reform, said Mary Naylor, PhD, FAAN, professor at the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing and director of the New Courtland Center for Transitions and Health.
"We must continue to document how we as nurses are making a difference. We must substantially increase our efforts to move our evidence into practice and policy to influence all of the decisions," Naylor said.
