Welcome Cindi Warburton!
We are so very pleased to announce Cindi Warburton as the new Executive Director of NWone. She has already shown herself to be a wonderful advocate for our organization, serving the Board and Commissions with enthusiasm, and we are excited to see her continue our mission in advancing the leadership contribution of nurses in creating health care solutions to serve our communities. We are most thankful for the guidance and leadership Jane Hutcheson has provided as our interim Executive Director. Not only was she instrumental in one of our most successful annual conferences ever, her warm personality and encouragement has fostered talent and relationships within our organizations and with our partner organizations.
