Through Thicket and Thin: Surviving Change at
  The Emory Clinic
The Emory Clinic is making unprecedented changes - not without some internal pain - that will result in better patient flow and service as well as a stronger bottom line.

Traveling Well
Clients ranging from professors to pilots increasingly are seeking out Emory's TravelWell.

Wanted: More Good Nurses
Like hospitals everywhere, Emory is feeling the pinch of a national nursing shortage -- and doing something about it.

Moving Forward
Highlights: a new Pediatric Environmental Specialty Unit, a major boost to our efforts to find an HIV vaccine; innovative approaches to treating urinary incontinence, impotence, leukemia, and the wet form of age-related macular degeneration.

On Point: Nurses' Prescriptive Authority
Georgia is the only state that doesn't allow APRNs to write prescriptions, says pediatric APRN Cathy Jordan, an assistant clinical professor in the nursing school.
