– Message from the CNO –
Last Friday, 30 nurses from our inpatient Shared Leadership Council (SLC) were invited to have breakfast and share in an open conversation with David Entwistle, our SHC President and CEO. David recognizes nursing’s commitment to protecting, promoting, and improving the health and wellness of our communities and is deeply committed is to our nurses & interprofessional colleagues. The feedback from participants was extremely positive and he is planning to hold more open conversations throughout the year among various nursing and interprofessional groups. Thank you to all that attended.
On a related note, we are rapidly approaching Nurse Week 2018 next week. I hope you and your teams are planning to participate in a few of the activities we have planned in your honor. Nurses serve the public in a wide range of roles and work settings and are on the front-lines of patient care 24/7/365. On behalf of Stanford Health Care, I want to thank you for your daily contributions to the patient experience, your interprofessional colleagues, as well as the nursing profession. As a three-time Magnet® recognized organization, it is your daily commitment to highly competent and compassionate care that sets us apart. We sincerely hope you enjoy the full listing of events we have planned, and we hope you find them fun and professionally fulfilling.
