In this interview we meet Carey Clark, RN, PhD to learn how she's fostering the creative emergence of the next generation of nursing.  Nurses need to lead the way in healthcare reform and it all begins with a self care practice that is part of Carey's writings and curriculum designing at the University of Maine Augusta. She is developing a caring-holistic-integral curriculum for the RN- BSN program.
