What letters do you have behind your name? It may be RN, ADN, MSN, BSN, PhD, CCRN or DE. Credentials help others identify our educational preparation, our accomplishments and our professional status. But they don't define who we really are.
For more than 25 years I have been a part of the Nurses' Health Study at Harvard School of Public Health. Now they are enrolling a new cohort of 100,000 female RNs and LPNs (born after 01/01/1965). The results of these studies benefit all women by providing valuable research into the causes of disease and the factors that promote healthy lives.
