Suzanne PrevostSuzanne S. Prevost, PhD, RN, COI

Dear Member,

As the year is ending, it is a great time to reflect on the successes and challenges of the past months and to think about the future. Take a few moments this month to consider—what was your most important accomplishment this year? Perhaps you achieved a professional goal, such as a promotion, a certification, a publication, or a higher degree. For others, this year’s big accomplishment might be personal, like buying a new home or welcoming a new family member. Read more from Suzanne Prevost.
