Welcome to the Exceptional Nurse Blog! I am Donna Maheady, EdD, ARNP, founder of www.ExceptionalNurse.com, the nonprofit resource committed to inclusion of people with disabilities in nursing. We facilitate inclusion of students with disabilities in nursing education programs and foster resilience and continued practice for nurses who are, or become, disabled. We celebrate abilities, share resources and examples of nurses with disabilities who work with and without accommodations.
Please visit the “nurses
section” at Arlington Cemetery
The granite statue of a nurse in uniform,
sculptured by Frances Rich, honors the nurses who served in the U.S. armed
forces in World War I, many of whom rest among the hundreds of nurses buried in
Section 21 -- also called the "Nurses Section."
