Question: What is the best part of your day?

Winter Chambers, RN-BC. Nurse Educator at Covenant Medical Center: The best part of my day is during my morning rounds. I have numerous opportunities to connect with the amazing patients we are blessed to serve. The personal connections I make with the patients always brighten my day.

Shannon Bates RN. Pediatric Intensive Care Unit Nurse Manger at Covenant Children's Hospital: The best part of my day is always when I get to round on all my patients and staff. I love to get out and talk to see what is working well, who should be recognized, what needs more clarity and what safety issues are going on.

Connie Gonzales, RN. Nurse Manager, Critical Care at Covenant Medical Center: Rounding on patients, families and caregivers. I like to get to know people on a personal level to figure out what I can do to help them and ease their way.
