Kathy has a passion for nursing education. She exudes excitement and enthusiasm when she talks about nursing at Island Hospital and about her desire to create a positive environment where nurses are encouraged to live up to their full potential. Kathy works diligently to provide education on new products, new procedures and topics requested by staff nurses. She is integral in the orientation and transition of nurses as well as certified nursing assistants and surgical scrub techs. Kathy is well known for her work and organizational skills in putting together and running a highly successful Annual Nursing Skills Day.
