A Nursing Life: Serving the Nation

A Nursing Life: Serving the Nation is an inspiring photojournalism project that has documented the work of the American Academy of Nursing’s Edge Runners, the nurse innovators at the center of the Edge Runner campaign. The Edge Runner campaign, designed to show how a better system can keep people healthy and how nurses are leading this transformation, has successfully reached policymakers and health professionals through briefings, written reports, and media exposure.
