Creative Nursing: A Journal of Values, Issues, Experience, and Collaboration

Volume 29, Issue #1: Inspiring, Recruiting, and Retaining the Health-Care Workforce

Creative Nursing: A Journal of Values, Issues, Experience, and Collaboration, is a themed peer-reviewed quarterly professional journal by and about nurses and other health-care professionals worldwide in all practice settings, that highlights creativity in caring for those we serve, in educating health-care professionals, and in addressing the structures that determine health and well-being.

The theme of Creative Nursing Volume 29 Issue 1 is Inspiring, Recruiting, and Retaining the Health-Care Workforce. The Annotated Table of Contents provides a concise summary of each article, as it relates to the issue’s theme.

Guest Editor Mary Jo Kreitzer, Director of the Bakken Center, states in her article, “We are at a concerning juncture in health care, in which neither patients nor health professionals are satisfied with the operation and outcomes of the U.S. health-care system. While there are sterling examples of extraordinary care that is lifesaving, all too often patients experience care that is fragmented, narrowly focused on a disease process rather than the whole person, and very costly.”

We hope you enjoy reading this issue!
