Welcome 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! Here 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.
