I have been in the same health care system in Arkansas for 33 years. I started as a new graduate RN and was promoted to education and management roles within the organization. In 2008, I was instrumental in opening one of the system hospitals where I served as the Chief Nursing Officer for 10 years. After finishing my DNP, I relocated to Indianapolis where I accepted a position teaching leadership in the graduate nursing program.
