"Chronic Kidney Disease: An Overview" is great-and how wonderful that it will be a six-part series. Thanks to author Sally Burrows-Hudson for sharing such a personal story. I'm taking copies of the article to the renal clinic where we treat all stages of chronic kidney disease (CKD). I'm sorry that CKD has become such a health crisis, but as Diana Mason said ("The Tragedy of Chronic Kidney Disease,"Editorial, February), it's time for all nurses to become aware and help with prevention. I'm happy to leave behind the days when people would look at me blankly and ask, "You're what kind of nurse?"
