“The Johns Hopkins School of Nursing has for all of its nearly 130 years been at the forefront of such research, with publication after publication building on the foundation laid by our predecessors.”
As a researcher, it’s incredibly exciting and gratifying to see all of your hard work, analysis, and teamwork published and shared with the world to help shape improved patient care. It’s like pure oxygen filling nurse-scientists’ lungs and boosting their spirits and endurance for more big data, big thinking, and big impact.
The Johns Hopkins School of Nursing has for all of its nearly 130 years been at the forefront of such research, with publication after publication building on the foundation laid by our predecessors. So it’s one of my favorite times of the year when we gather the previous year’s research for the summer issue of the Johns Hopkins Nursing magazine. This impressive body of work reflects our brilliant and innovative faculty, and I am so proud of their accomplishments and passion to publish.
We have put it all into a slightly different package this year as we work to refresh the look and feel of Johns Hopkins Nursing in its printed form. Watch for that to arrive this fall. Meanwhile, we have assembled publications by subject area and then alphabetically by title. We’ve broken out a few highlights that we hope will make you want to read—and learn—more as you enjoy the summer (or hide away from it in a comfy, air-conditioned space).
There is so much more research in the pipeline that we’re already looking forward to next summer.
