Goals for the Position

I have been attending SUNA Annual Conferences and have been a member of SUNA for 15 years. Through SUNA I have gained much knowledge and confidence in nursing and have been empowered by networking with colleagues. As a goal in the position of Director-at-Large, I want to instill the same passion for learning and desire for quality patient care. I also would like to promote programs and activities within SUNA that expand professional growth and increase the interest of nursing associates. I also plan to further my knowledge on an executive level as I interact with other Board members and provide assistance in the tasks that are needed. As Director-at-Large I will participate in helping improve SUNA to my fullest.
