Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit (CVICU) Nurses


Renee Thompson, DNP, RN, RT Connections, LLC, @RTConnections:"At RTConnections, I educate, connect and inspire current and future nurses. I started this company because I really believe that patients deserve to be cared for by competent, compassionate nurses and that nurses deserve to believe they make a difference. To make that happen I offer keynote presentations that help nurses take ownership of their practice; seminars and workshops to improve clinical and professional practice; and consulting to help organizations create nurturing and supportive work environments for employees and the patients they serve. My area of expertise is in professional development, nurse-to-nurse bullying, communication/collaboration, team building and academic service partnerships."
