Congratulations! Modern Healthcare has named nine outstanding nurses on its 2010 list of Most Powerful in Health Care, with seven of them ranked in the top 50.

Among the nurses are Sister Carol Keehan, DC, RN, MS, president and chief executive officer of the Catholic Health Association (CHA)—the highest ranking nurse on the list, and the fifth most important person in healthcare overall—American Nurses Association immediate past president Rebecca M. Patton, MSN, RN, CNOR, and Beverly Malone, PhD, RN, FAAN, chief executive officer of the National League for Nursing (NLN).

All of them share the same vision and passion for nursing, a keen interest in patient care, and encourage all nurses to get more involved in healthcare decisions, join boards, and be active participants in places where opinion and decisions on healthcare are being shaped and discussed.  Each of them believes nurses play a critical role in shaping the future of healthcare, and that their influence can have a large impact.
