2021 UCSDH Journal of Nursing

With great pride, the Image of Nursing Council would like to present the 18th edition of our UC San Diego Health Journal of Nursing, The Power of the Professional Nurse.

This journal centers on our Magnet journey and the Magnet Model which represents standards that reflect a work environment that supports and encourages excellence in nursing.  This journal highlights the power of the professional nurse through new initiatives,  nursing stories, inspiring projects and accomplishments from various departments of our UCSDH nursing team.

The Image of Nursing Council would like to thank all of the contributors who put a great deal of effort, expertise and care into this very special edition.
