Nurse’s Innovative App is Giving a Voice to the Voiceless

Rebecca S. Koszalinski, PhD, RN, CRRN, CMSRN, was inspired to become a nurse after experiencing a nurse’s care during her own health journey.

Throughout her career as a clinical instructor, researcher, assistant professor, and – most recently – mobile app developer, Rebecca has been committed to improving outcomes for patients with disabilities and/or chronic illnesses who are speech vulnerable. Available for use on iPads and Android tablets, Rebecca’s Speak for Myself® app helps patients communicate pain, fear, anxiety, and loneliness with their healthcare providers, and allows patients to make requests regarding physical needs, such as using the restroom.

Rebecca recently shared her innovation story with us, and her hope that other nurses will be inspired to effect changes in patient care, too.
