Welcome to my new blog!

0Welcome to my blog! I hope to use this forum to be able to connect with all of you and share some interesting discussions about what is happening in the realm of nursing, both locally here at Stanford and elsewhere around the world. This will be the first of many posts to come and I am excited to share them with all of you.

Yesterday I got home from Scottsdale Arizona from the UHC conference with three of our incredible ITA staff. The conference was an opportunity for the graduates of Nurse Residency Programs across the country to come together to talk about best practices, lessons learned and new goals to discover–and discover we did!  030515_2Here you see Lauren Bianchi, RN, MSN, Nurse Residency Graduate from 2014 and her poster presentation about the use of cryotherapy on mucositis in the BMT patient. There were a total of 35 entries for the poster presentation and as of this morning, we received confirmation that Lauren’s poster won first place at UHC.

I am so proud of our staff nurses who are constantly working to improve the care that we provide for our patients.

  1. Congratulations to Lauren! What a wonderful experience and accomplishment. Thank you Nancy for always supporting Stanford Nursing!


  2. Although I recently resigned from Stanford to pursue my dream of travel with my herd of three horses as an Equine Nomad, I just wanted to say I think publishing your blog is a great idea. I hope I can follow your blog into my retirement years.

    Nurses can change the world in so many positive ways, and Stanford nurses should lead the way. I am so grateful that I was able to have another great round as a Stanford nurse before my “Return to the Wild” as a traveler on horseback.

    After a wonderful Career in Nursing spanning over 40 years in Health Care, I can say without a shadow of doubt that working in the Stanford Emergency Department was the pinnacle of my career. I just loved my experience in the ED under the excellent Leadership of Patrice Callaghy and her crew of wonderful ANMs.

    The quality of care at Stanford is a standard that truly sets the bar for the rest of the world of Nursing.

    Thanks for all you do in the world and thanks for sharing in the leadership for such a wonderful organization. You are doing everything right. I feel very grateful to have become a part of the Stanford ED team, and will never forget my incredible experiences on so many levels.

    Hope to stay in touch!


  3. I am very excited to see our new blog develop with feedback from all of our nurses. Anyway that we can make it easier to communicate is a good thing. We have so much to be proud of in Stanford Nursing and this is another place we can share our stories and successes with each other.


  4. As a new team member at Stanford Health Care in the Nurse Residency Program, I am excited and grateful for the support I have received from every member within the whole organization. I love this blog and look forward to reading it for information and inspiration!! Congratulations Lauren on your achievement!!
