Dear Nurse Executive: A Heart-Felt Thanks for ALL You Do
Rhonda Williams, M.S.N., M.B.A.
Vice President, Client Services & Coach, Language of Caring, LLC
Dear Nursing Executive, I want to give you warm and heart-felt thanks for all you do every day. Doing the work of Angels is not easy but without you, patients and families could not experience the care necessary to heal. The work you do goes so far beyond what is obvious to the eye. As a former Nurse Executive, I understand how much of you is required to accomplish even small bits of progress in the midst of the major challenges you face.

Enhance the Patient Experience: Make Courage a Job Requirement
Jill Golde, M.S.
Partner & SVP, Market Development, Language of Caring, LLC
It’s 2 am and there’s loud talking at the nurses’ station. Marty realizes she and her coworkers must be disturbing patients. She lowers her own voice. Is Marty doing enough? Many of us spearhead strategies to create a consistently exceptional and healing patient and family experience. We identify best practices and implement them with gusto.

We have to do what is called for even when it feels scary, awkward, or unnatural.
