May 2020: Excellence in Nursing
A good part of this month’s issue is dedicated to a salute of the state’s finest nurses, as recognized by the DAISY Foundation and the New Jersey State Nurses Association (NJSNA).
This editorial project was in the works for almost a year. As we finished it, we witnessed a new demonstration of the excellence of our nursing professionals. As of March 20, almost 500 additional nurses—including school and company nurses—had answered the NJSNA’s call for volunteers to work on the front lines against the coronavirus pandemic.
To these dedicated individuals, and to all who have walked into the eye of the storm to help their neighbors, we offer heartfelt thanks. Stay safe.
