2022 Nursing Annual Report

"UCLA Health is nursing excellence in action. The same skills that were used to stand up our COVID-19 care are the skills and competencies used by our nurses every day. We rely on science, we live the UCLA Health vision, and we are passionate about our relationships with our patients, their families and our colleagues. We rely on those relationships for ideas as well as for solace and support. All of these elements made two Magnet® redesignations possible.

I believe the primary silver lining of COVID-19 is knowing that UCLA Health Nursing is an exemplar of nursing excellence because of who we are and our passion for what we do." - Karen Grimley
