Change is imminent and already here in healthcare; and nurses are in the perfect position to lead colleagues, patients and our nursing profession forward. New evidence-based ways of preventing and treating illness are here. The foundations of healthcare are shifting and nursing is in the perfect place to facilitate these changes and lead, train and educate all. The pathway to health has broadened and includes holistic and integrative methods of care. We can support these changes by leading our patients and our colleagues to the research and evidence that proves we have a new way to take care of ourselves, and it includes medical cannabis. Don't stand on the shore, be a part of the wave. Nurses are leaders. Take your place to guide the future.
