HEALTHCARE IN THE SHADOWS
BONNIE PILON, PHD, NEA-BC, FAAN
The metaphor of Healthcare in the Shadows comes from the way Bonnie thinks about nurse led care…”that we do our work largely in the shadow of the larger healthcare systems and few people really know all of the ways that APNs are serving those who need us most.”
As an awarded sabbatical project, from Vanderbilt School of Nursing, Bonnie will visit a number of nurse managed or nurse led health centers and clinics across the country in hopes of discovering the reason(s) why each center was developed, its history, a description of patients and communities served, the impact on patients’ lives, and stories that help define their culture.
Join Bonnie as she blogs about each site and learn about the incredible things nurses are doing, largely for vulnerable populations, across the country.
