The Magic 8 Ball had been recently inducted to the National Toy Hall of Fame. I was tempted to think about how easy it would be if nurses could consult this iconic fortune-telling game for answers as I sat down to write about the top issues nurse leaders need to pay attention to in 2019.

To obtain an understanding that is real just just just what the long run holds for medical, we talked with Paula McKinney, DNP, RN, NE-BC, vice president, patient services at Woodlawn Hospital in Rochester, Indiana, that is familiar with the difficulties primary medical officers are dealing with this season.
