CNO Roundtable 2023
Chief Nursing Officer Roundtable 2023
Celebrating Nurses Week
Each year, we celebrate Nurses Week by inviting chief nursing officers from California hospitals to participate in a roundtable discussing important issues facing nurses today. This year, we asked our panel to respond to the following seven questions:
- Why do you think the public has such a strong trust in nurses?
- How can nurses work more effectively within multidisciplinary teams?
- What’s a noteworthy nurse-led project you’ve seen recently?
- What do you see as the biggest challenges in preparing new grad RNs today?
- What’s a new technology you think will be commonplace in 10 years?
- What advice do you have for nurses interested in a leadership career?
- What do you love most about being a CNO?
