Celebration of a nurse hero - Brian Short, of allnurses com

BRIAN SHORT, Founder and CEO allnurses.com

Brian Short is a Registered Nurse, self-taught website designer, entrepreneur, and passionate online community developer. In 1996, when the internet was in its infancy, Brian started what would later become allnurses.com, the largest online nursing community on the web. He was far ahead of his time in recognizing the internet as a virtual meeting place where nurses can share and connect with others.

While attending nursing school, Brian was amazed with the internet but found it difficult to locate nursing related information online. As a hobby, Brian decided to begin organizing the professional nursing content he found so other nurses could benefit from his work. That hobby turned into a passion and shortly after graduating from nursing school he created the precursor to allnurses.com – a text-based discussion forum and e-newsletter. Two years after that, he left full time nursing to concentrate more energy on the site with the mission of providing a forum to improve members’ lives and careers through sharing and learning. Today, allnurses.com has more than 850,000 active members who contribute more than 300 new topics daily.

n October of 2010, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) released the report, The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health. This major initiative began in 2008, with the formation of a committee to assess and transform the nursing profession. As nurses, we can and should play a fundamental role in health care, especially during this time, as the health care system of the United States undergoes major changes.
