Texas Team Region Nurse Leaders, Regional Leadership Teams

In mid-January 2012, the Texas Team Advancing Health through Nursing Action Coalition, convened to advance the Future of Nursing: Campaign for Action, announced nurse leaders for its Regional Leadership Teams.  The list follows. 

Within each of the eight Texas Team regions, the nurse leader will be joined by a regional business leader to form the co-leadership of a Regional Leadership Team.  Regional Leadership Teams will work collectively within the Texas Team Executive Committee and the two State Leadership Teams (Advancing Nursing Practice and Advancing Nursing Education) to address Campaign goals within their regions.
