Dear Nursing Colleagues,
I am honored to follow in Genemarie McGee’s footsteps as your Interim System Chief Nursing Officer and I am very excited about the future of nursing and transforming how we care for consumers across Sentara.
There are many challenging and transformative initiatives coming our way over the next months which will require the input of nurses at all levels and others who impact the delivery of care to our patients. Now is the time for generating and implementing new and innovative initiatives, transparency, broader and deeper collaboration, and courageous leadership, especially for those at the sharp points of service and care.
I am looking forward to our future and positively impacting how we care for others, and like Genemarie, I truly believe Sentara has the best nurses and clinical care colleagues for ensuring we exemplify One Sentara. I too challenge each of you to continue our work to ensure we deliver safe, high-quality nursing and clinical care to our patients and members that is also kind and compassionate. I hope this repository of Sentara Nursing Resources helps you in your practice as a Sentara Nurse.
