“Building a collaborative culture among the many and varied health care disciplines, whether through clinical practice or nurse education, has been one of the most uniquely rewarding and satisfying experiences of my career. Witnessing the ever-changing health care needs being met by multidisciplinary teams striving for excellence in practice and patient care outcomes has been a pure joy and makes the hard part of all this work ever so special.” — Diana Kozlina-Peretic
