To celebrate the launch of the Year of the Nurse and the Midwife, Women's Healthcare launched its My Nurse Influencer program to feature some of the greatest online nurse influencers! These influencers bring a fresh perspective to our journal and offer our readers more diverse topic matter. We are also thrilled to offer these influencers a platform to share their voices.

We hope you enjoy our influencer program, and if you are interested in learning more, contact Dave Gilmartin, Digital Content Editor at DGilmartin@healthcommedia.com for more information.
