A new breast cancer study led by nurse Karen E. Greco, RN, PhD, ANP-BC, titled “Mammography Decision Making in Older Women With a Breast Cancer Family History,” published in the Journal of Nursing Scholarship, looks at how women (55 years and older) make decisions on breast cancer screening if they have a first-degree relative who has been diagnosed with breast cancer. Considering the average age of RNs in the United States was 46 in 2008—up from 45.2 in 2000—the findings in Greco’s study should be news that every nurse takes to heart.
