"This is an exciting opportunity to affect system change to enhance both safe patient care and the nursing profession," said Sally Watkins. "I look forward to building strong relationships with nursing leaders, members of the Nursing Care Quality Assurance Commission, various State agency staff, elected officials, and other health care advocates in Washington in working towards the common goal of delivering quality health care."
