We believe powerful, influential and exceptionally effective nurse leaders must be at the core of, and are critical in, advancing the future of healthcare.


Executive Director Update


Colleges of Nursing are gearing up to for Fall classes and Academic and Clinical partnership, collaboration and coordination are on everyone's minds. Over the last 2 weeks, NWONL has held two CNO / Dean Rounding calls with distinguished principals from both academic and practice nurse leaders. These discussions yielded some concise takeaways, themes, and opportunities. Check out the CNO Rounding Report NWONL CNO / Dean Rounding Report. We know these are challenging times and it was refreshing to hear from Nurse Leaders across both states on how they are tackling the issues. From this, we will be scheduling more time to connect on these important issues, be on the lookout for invitations to the focused discussion groups.
