We believe powerful, influential and exceptionally effective nurse leaders must be at the core of, and are critical in, advancing the future of healthcare.
July 8th and 15th | 11:30a - 1:00p PST
Summer is here and we are still dealing with many unknowns: virus outbreaks, crisis response, scheduling and canceling, trying to find a new normal routine, etc. In all of this, life still happens. This past week, my "mother-in-love" passed away after 3 months of illness, multiple hospitalizations, and decline. She died peacefully, in a hospital surrounded by her care team and family. Her experience these past few months has again showcased the impact of nursing on the humanity of our profession. With grace, her nurses made her comfortable, experienced her wicked sense of humor with laughs and love and the whole team made a difficult situation peaceful and calm. While this level of care is not unique, it reminds me of our call to nursing leadership. We are vital to the health and profession of nursing, the care teams that we lead, the impact on patients and their families as well as our communities.
With much gratitude to you all, -cw
