Executive Director Update

September 2022

September is a pivotal month for NWONL, we use this month to update plans and position for Q4. This month's update is NWONL focused and straightforward: Our Board nominations and elections kick off in October and our Annual Scholarship applications are opened. Shortly after, we begin the strategic planning and positioning process, will onboard new leaders, prepare to launch the next Mentor Cohort and a myriad of other activities. Including a CNO & Dean Summit, monthly Member events, more ACNL collaboration plus preparing for a new online Member experience... it is indeed a big plate, but truly, it is our calling and we are thankful to be part of developing and advancing Nursing Leadership across the region. My personal hope is that you are finding the time to enjoy the last waning days of summer and getting as excited as I am for the fall festivities!

You are the faces of courage, grace and grit.
