Hello Fellow Nurse Leaders,
The COVID-19 Pandemic is changing the world in which we work, live and play. We are so grateful to have nurse leaders across the state (PONL) and in western Pennsylvania (SWPONL) who are leading the way in their local communities and to lean on during this difficult and unpredictable time.
PONL has posted a page for resources which will help to facilitate resources and to reduce e-mail clutter. For your convenience, a direct link to this section of the website is here. If you have any information that you would like to share, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
To continue the focus on the priorities at hand, and to safeguard each other, SWPONL will not have a spring educational session this year.
I have never been more proud to be part of the nursing profession who are leaders in critical command centers, developing strategic plans, caring for patients inside and outside the walls of the hospitals and are caring for each other and their own families. Remember, to care for others, you need to take time for yourself.
This is an extraordinary time for all of us. Know that your network of SWPONL members are in this together. Be well and be kind - especially to those that may feel isolated during this time.
