We might remember 2022 as a year when we started to rebuild from the most serious public health crisis of our time.
Our readership analytics seemed to affirm that sentiment. Indeed, the most-read story from CU Nursing’s newsroom highlighted how nurses processed their grief during the pandemic through art. The second most-read story provided insights for how nurses can deal with “burnout.”
Also included in our most-read list is a feature about Raiza Deyto, the college’s first COMBAT scholar, and a remembrance of the late Ann Noordenbos Smith – one of the very first Pediatric Nurse Practitioners in the country, and a longtime faculty member at the college. An article about cutting the bureaucratic red tape in the RN licensure process generated much interest as well – signaling that many readers may have an appetite for practical career-oriented advice.
