Faced with significant changes in student demographics in the coming years, as well as a growing level of awareness and engagement at the federal level on issues of public health, institutions of higher learning must grapple with how to adapt, respond, and innovate to effectively meet these shifts.

- Nurses and Nurse Practitioners
