YON 2020 Day 304: Laura J. Abels, BA, DNP, RN, APRN, PMHCNS-BC, APHN-BC

Fifteen years ago, when she was a psychiatric nurse, Laura J. Abels, BA, DNP, RN, APRN, PMHCNS-BC, APHN-BC, says she would have laughed at the idea of taking on an educator role. But three years ago, Dr. Abels, a psychiatric mental health clinical nurse specialist, had the opportunity to become the Advanced Practice Education Coordinator at Akron Children's Hospital. It was a move she didn't anticipate, but one that brought her a deeper appreciation of nursing. In her Year of the Nurse story, Dr. Abels encourages nurses who may be interested in pursuing something outside of their scope of practice.
