Nursing in the 21st Century (N21) is a new place for nurses to speak, question, discuss, define, and collaboratively resolve the challenges facing their profession.

Available as a free iOS app, N21 is peer reviewed, mobile (no print), and theme based, so contributors represent a range of professional backgrounds.

N21 also utilizes a new storytelling platform, designed by Atavist. This means each article is enhanced with a variety of multi-media “extras,” including audio, video, and graphics, that appear and recede with a tap. There is also a commenting bubble at the bottom of each article.

With the 2010 Affordable Care Act, health care in America is moving into uncharted territory. Care models are transforming for providers and for recipients. And, with an unprecedented opportunity to define themselves outside the shadow of physician- and hospital-centered care, nurses are also on the verge of a tremendous shift, not only in how they practice, but in how they are educated.

N21 was created to stimulate conversation surrounding these transformations.
