Executive Director September Update

Kicking off Fall 

Once again Nurse Leaders are carrying the weight of extraordinarily complex issues that ultimately impact our communities directly. Our profession is relying on you, your expertise and your influence, to sort out staffing, surge response, vaccinations, compliance, hesitation, burnout, resistance all while staying grounded and maintaining organizational stability. As we move through this epoch of challenges, we must continue to find and share those stories that demonstrate we are united collectively across our profession and our communities. I'm encouraged by the tenacity of healthcare to persevere and their dedication to their service. I've included a couple of notable works (below) that specifically showcase the impact of nursing. All this to say, I‘m grateful for you. We in the nursing profession at the center of our current shared reality. I am comforted to know that you all are there and leading through these profound times. Because of you, we are going to be ok.

You are the faces of Courage, Grace and Grit.
