In Heathcare It Is Easier To Act Our Way Into A New Kind Of Thinking Than It Is To Think Ourselves Into A New Way Of Acting.
Ida Iversen, RN, BSN, Partners HealthCare, Greater Boston Area
My mission is to care for others within the healthcare industry with compassion and laughter. Caring for patients and giving optimal nursing care is what I do best. I will seek to learn, for learning is the basis for growth, and growing is the key to living. I will seek first to understand, for understanding is the key to finding value, and value is the basis for respect, decisions, and actions. I want to help influence the future development of healthcare and it's organizations. I want to teach my children and others to love and laugh, to learn and grow beyond their current bounds. I will build relationships by giving the best that I can offer.
