This chapter focuses on the role of nurses in bringing positive changes to population health through public health collaborative efforts. The chapter questions why nurses haven't enjoyed a more prominent role in some in community public health projects. It lists some historic figures in the nursing world. The chapter concludes with a look to the evolving role of nurses now and in the future. Although professional nurses will continue to serve at the bedside of patients and families in their most vulnerable moments, they have also begun to use their advocacy and leadership skills to make positive changes and offer solutions to the challenges and choices that patients, families, and communities face in our evolving health care system.
