To my fellow Nurses, it seems like we just got back from the holidays and yet, here we are, closing the month of January already. As we continue with our journey, I wanted to share some great achievements by some of our magnificent Nurses in Research. Yesterday at the Nursing Grand Rounds, Mary Lough, Trisha Jenkins, Linda Dupuis-Rosen and Ed Shradar, were awarded with a Certificate of Recognition for Nursing Excellence in Research. As professional nurses we have a responsibility to both evaluate and improve our practice and to constantly question how we can improve that practice. I cannot emphasize enough the importance of the work that they do. It does not only impact our organization, but the global Nursing community as well. Please join me in congratulating these amazing individuals for their outstanding work.
