"Ms. Bankhead has nursing leadership over the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) which is a highly visible nursing unit with high acuity patients requiring the highest level of medical and nursing care. She is able to effectively coordinate and work with physicians, the nursing staff, and other health care professionals to promote high levels of service, patient satisfaction, and patient care quality.
Ms. Bankhead has been instrumental in promoting evidenced-based practice within the clinical setting of the hospital. Her leadership role & participation in various projects, such as extubation readiness, CLABSI prevention (use of ethanol locks), and the development of the pediatric burn care program, has led to developing and improving processes to enhance patient safety & quality in the organization.Her leadership role, focus on evidence-based practice, experience, and certifications attest to qualifying her as a Doctorate in Nursing Practice (DNP) candidate now and as a DNP in the future."
My experiences as a nurse expands from the bedside to leadership. I have used these experiences to develop my skills creating successful teams and implementing evidence-based practice into daily quality patient care. I am involved in multiple nursing and quality projects within my organization, the state level, and nationally. My passion for nursing care has not diminished as evident by pursuit of my DNP and my involvement with EBP promotion.
