AUSTIN, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, December 11, 2017 — When we think of nurses, we envision women in simple white dresses, stockings and hats submissively assisting male doctors. Nursing has thankfully evolved into a well-respected profession. Nurses require specialized knowledge and skills and are essential to all parts of the healthcare system.
Dr. Joyce Batcheller is an adjunct professor for Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center School of Nursing in Lubbock, TX, a renowned keynote speaker, and an executive nurse advisor for the Center for the Advancement of Healthcare Professionals for AMN Healthcare. Joyce’s impressive, distinguished career spans over 40 years, which includes over 19 years as a SVP/system Chief Nursing Officer for a multi-hospital setting.
“I have achieved a wide variety of accomplishments throughout my health care career,” says Joyce. “Nursing is a profoundly rewarding profession with a plethora of career choices you can explore depending on your particular skills and interests. It’s enjoyable and gratifying for me to coach and unleash people’s talents and potential.”
Joyce was inspired to follow a nursing career following a terrible car accident at the age of five. While hospitalized, she had a chance encounter with a kind-hearted nurse she so deeply connected with she vowed to someday follow in her footsteps.
“My intense desire for creating tremendous impact in patient’s lives has been an ongoing passion for me since I was very young and that still hasn’t wavered,” explains Joyce. “I’ve had a very productive and beneficial career. At times it can admittedly be stressful, but you know you have made a positive difference in someone’s life.”
Joyce has over 220 executive leaders who have participated in a CNO academy that she has developed for new and aspiring to be CNOs. So far 39 of the participants have promoted into this senior executive role which is exciting. A CNO Academy II which has been designed for more experienced CNOs successfully launched this past September in Washington DC. She’s also in the process of finishing up a program evaluation article, which will be published in 2018.
“For anyone considering nursing as a career choice I wholeheartedly recommend you find a great network of colleagues for support,” says Joyce. “Having mentors outside of the organization you work in is also critical. To see nurses come as far as they have today has been one of the most satisfying breakthroughs of my career. I receive momentous joy and satisfaction being able to coach people that come into the profession.”
CUTV News Radio will feature Joyce Batcheller in an interview with Jim Masters on December 12th at 3pm EST.
