Words from a Trusted Client

Smiling woman

“They come with experience in a variety of acute-care settings. It’s bidirectional communication about the cultures that’s important. A lot of people miss the piece of educating American nurses about the cultures the nurses are coming from.”

Ellen D. Hansen, RN, BSN, MS, chief operating officer and chief nursing officer at McLane Children’s Hospital
