Chief Nursing Officer, Masters Student
"Working in rural health requires a lot of collaboration. Not only because of the limited resources, but because rural health organizations tend to help each other - just like rural communities come together in a time of need - so do rural hospitals. If our success in employee vaccination can help another hospital with their employee vaccination - the spirit of working rural continues."
