Nursing and NETEC
March 4, 2021 by UNMC CON CNE

We are joined by two special guests and nurses extraordinaire, Angela Vasa and Sharon Vanairsdale! Angie and Sharon are Directors for National Emerging Special Pathogens Training and Education Center, or NETEC. The Ebola epidemic caused serious challenges in providing safe care, and NETEC was formed to lead the response. It has since evolved into a national presence during COVID, lead in part by our guests! We talk about how "just say yes" and "step forward" are key to nursing leadership, and how nurses are uniquely positioned for leadership in the healthcare team. We hope you enjoy this episode of RN Huddle and remember to wear a mask, wash your hands, and stay safe! Read More.
