Every month we ask NWONL Nurse Leaders to help us highlight one of their own. This section is intended to hold space, give pause to and celebrate YOU. In light of our upcoming Conference, I am taking the liberty to call out a few of our own NWONL Legacy Nurse Leaders. These Nurses have influenced the profession of nursing by their dedicated resilience, calm in the chaos, vision that inspires and the ability to empower and strengthen the very core of what it means to be a nurse and a Leader of Nurses. For all of the tireless service, many have quietly “semi-retired” and stepped out of their formal role of leadership, but continue to give back to the profession in some way or another.
If you are going to the Annual Conference and want to experience Leaders of Courage, Grace and Grit first hand, this is your chance. Several of these exemplary Leaders will be in attendance, find them and thank them personally for their lifelong commitment to our profession.
