2018 Nursing Annual Report
From the Chief Nursing Officer
It is with great pleasure that I present the 2018 Nursing Annual Report. Our report highlights examples of clinical nurses and nurse leaders collaborating to promote exceptional nursing practice, leading to improved safety, quality and patient satisfaction. Nursing continues to contribute to the organization’s mission to improve the health of our community through innovative, outstanding care and services through exceptional people doing exceptional work.
Nurses across the continuum promote a professional practice environment through active participation in Professional Governance and The Uncommon Leader (TUL) culture. Our inter-professional efforts result in improved quality outcomes, patient satisfaction and exceptional nurse satisfaction as measured by the most recent nurse engagement survey.
The incredible Magnet® site visit leading to our fourth Magnet designation and our successful Joint Commission survey in November 2018 are evidence that Colleagues are actively living our values and meeting our mission. Nurses are presenting their achievements on the national stage and sharing best practice with healthcare organizations around the world.
Please join me in celebrating the outstanding accomplishments of these exceptional nurses as we work together to advance nursing practice and deliver excellence to those we serve.
