Thanks for your article in the Nurse Leader on shared decision making. I always appreciate your words of wisdom in this arena.
Great examples of control charts used [in NCP’s webinars] to “tell a story” of improvement over time.

Thank you so much for an amazing Nurses Day! We had the best turnout ever, and your presentations were spectacular. People have been talking about it ever since, and I’ve heard grumbling from people who couldn’t be there—a sure sign of a great event! Thank you for your wisdom and support! It has been totally great working with you.

I wanted to say thank [our consultants] for their insight. I’m a staff nurse and beyond their guidance for Magnet, they provided insights into my profession while tying in IOM and ANA principles. You inspired my colleagues and myself with our journey.
Joy Fumera

Thank you for the excellent workshops you conducted for our nursing leaders, council members, and educators. Finalizing the professional practice model as well as writing our bylaws, and council charters and objectives, was monumental. There was overwhelmingly positive feedback and enthusiasm as we move forward on our shared governance journey. Thank you for your leadership and expertise.
St. Mary's Health System
The level of excitement since your visit is outrageous. Staff are even more engaged and energized, with most talking about the learnings you shared.
Just wanted to take a moment to send you a personal note of thanks for all of the efforts you and your team put into helping our organization successfully achieve its fourth Magnet designation. Although Julie and her leadership group are enjoying many well-deserved accolades for this successful accomplishment, I have certainly not forgotten that it was you and your partners who helped immeasurably in getting our Magnet efforts back on track and providing assistance and mentoring to Julie and our team as they navigated this process and re-tooled our nursing governance structure. It is amazing to think back 2 ½ years and realize how far our nursing team has come in that short amount of time. Thanks so much again Kathleen for all of the time, thought and effort you and your colleagues put into helping us achieve this milestone.
