Three million and growing, nurses represent the backbone, brain, heart and soul of the health care system. We are in the midst of an exciting transformation in healthcare that needs creative destruction and disruptive innovation and nurses are perfectly positioned to do just that and more,” said Cole Edmonson, DNP, RN, FACHE, NEA-BC, President of the DFW Great 100.


The 2014 Great 100 Nurses were selected from over 700 nominations submitted by patients, families, colleagues, teachers, students, co-workers and supervisors.
