ANA-MI hosted their second, complimentary, Virtual Town Hall-Remembering Our Why: You Share, We Listen on May 24th. We would like to extend a thank you to our moderator, Tim Bulson, Community Relations Coordinator, St. Ann’s in Grand Rapids. We would also like to give a special thank you to our exceptional line-up of panelists: Selina Dallas, Administrative Director, DMC Sinai Grace; Dr. Nancy May, Chief Nurse Executive, University of Michigan Health System; and Linda Schaltz, Chief Nursing Officer, Spectrum Health Zeeland Community Hospital.
The conversation focused on ways to improve recruitment and retention. Each panelist had the opportunity to share solutions for ways to retain nurses, talk about what we can do to encourage nurses to stay in the profession, and offer innovative ways to acknowledge, and reward nurses for the great work they do and the quality care they provide to their patients. Members were able to join the conversation and interact in real-time with the panelists.
Thank you to Linda, Nancy, and Selina for being on the panel and to Timothy for moderating. This has been very insightful, and I have been given some great ideas." - Helena
