ABSTRACT: Throughout the past 50 years, the role of the neuroscience nurse has become more specialized as we continue to keep pace with new innovations and improvement in care for our patients. This is evident when reviewing the hundreds of articles that have been published in the Journal of Neuroscience Nursing over the last half-century. These authors have had a tremendous influence over neuroscience nursing through dissemination of their expert knowledge. This article will review the areas of pediatric hydrocephalus, brain tumors, and epilepsy and the role neuroscience nurses have played in the advancement of these specialties.
