ANNA's 50th Anniversary Podcast Series

podcastIn honor of ANNA’s 50th anniversary, the Nephrology Nursing Journal began an oral history of ANNA, nephrology nursing, and the care of patients with kidney disease, interviewing past presidents of ANNA and other nephrology nurse leaders. These recordings shine light on the specialty's rich history, the challenges the nephrology nursing practice has faced, and the advances made over the last 50 years.

This series will also be of interest to nurses in many other specialties. While the focus is on nephrology, these interviews provide a time capsule of what nursing was like as a profession from the 1960s to the present and how a specialty organization can influence the lives of patients and nurses.

The first group of podcast episodes was released during the ANNA National Symposium in Dallas, TX, in April 2019. Future episodes will be produced throughout the year to continue ANNA's 50th anniversary celebration.

ANNA's 50th Anniversary Podcast Series is brought to you by the Nephrology Nursing Journal.
