  • NPIG Update

    Posted on June 17, 2022, 9:24 a.m.

    My dear NP colleagues,

    As I reflect on the last two years, we have stayed strong, held it together the best we could.  We have had some fantastic topics through the Insider webinars. Many of our rich conversations and topics were fueled by the COVID pandemic.  In fact, I believe that we now see our profession in a very different light—we see more opportunities, not less.  Though at times the situations feel like barriers, lets rather see them as distractions and refocus our energies toward change.
