The Evolving Role of Nursing
A nurse checks a patient's blood pressure.

The practice of nursing has evolved dramatically since the 1970s. Nurses have long been at the forefront of patient care, and changes in demographics, technology and our healthcare systems during the last 50 years have required nurses to take on an even greater role in patient treatment and health management.

Here to take a look at the changing role of nursing on this last day of National Nurses Week are University of Cincinnati College of Nursing Dean, Dr. Greer Glazer; and Dr. Karen Bankston, associate dean of clinical practice at the UC College of Nursing.
