As nurse executives (NEs), we are aware of our emerging, expanding roles as single settings, whether hospitals, clinics, or other entities, are morphing into components of whole systems. We are challenged to focus appropriate attention inward to ensure that nursing is positioned to lead while extending ourselves outward, to participate in shaping new systems. This month, we will shine the spotlight on these transitions, identifying some of the triumphs and challenges, in a conversation with Donna King, an NE with Advocate Health Care in Illinois.
