2017 Nursing Annual Report

Changing Lives Every Day

Nursing Annual Report 2017: Changing Lives Every DayChanging Lives Every Day is the hallmark of our nursing profession. It's the reason why we chose it as our theme for this year's nursing annual report. Our stories profile the impact nurses made in advancing patient care and service across The University of Kansas Health System. Every day, our nurses make personal connections with their patients.

We are excited to celebrate our accomplishments from last year with you. This is also an opportunity to renew our purpose for choosing nursing as our profession so we may continue changing lives every day
