CNO Roundtable 2021

Chief Nursing Officer Roundtable 2021

Turning the corner on the pandemic

After a year of tragedy and hard lessons, the arrival of three COVID-19 vaccines brought much-needed hope that the end of pandemic may be in sight.

Hosting a CNO Roundtable is a tradition for our May Nurses Week issue. This year, 18 chief nursing executives from local institutions joined us to discuss what they’ve learned during this crisis, their strategies for coping, moments of inspiration, and what we can expect in a post-pandemic world.
