Since taking over for the inimitable Laura Raines as editor of Pulse and Celebrating Nurses, I’ve found Atlanta’s nursing and allied health community simultaneously fascinating, inspiring and humbling. There’s nothing quite like being around nurses to make you feel like a mere civilian among super-heroes. Editing Jon Waterhouse’s interviews with our 10 winners and two alternates drove those feelings home, and I’m certain that as you read about our celebrated nurses, you’ll understand.
We are honored and privileged to work with the region’s nurses, and hope we will see all of you at our 10th annual awards luncheon on Tuesday, May 12. — Lane Holman, Special Sections Editor
