Last week, The Gypsy Nurse hosted GIFTED Healthcare for a Facebook Live Event titled, “Frontline Innovation: How Nurses Can Get Their Ideas Heard and Lead in the Aftermath of a Pandemic.”
A fantastic presentation was given by Dr. Tim Raderstorf, Chief Innovation Officer at the Ohio State University College of Nursing and Chief Operating Officer of NursesEverywhere, a nurse advocacy nonprofit organization founded by GIFTED Healthcare CEO PK Scheerle, RN. We had a great turnout and lots of audience participation – thanks to all who joined this exciting discussion!
