Vanderbilt to appoint director of nurse safety, well-being

Nashville, Tenn.-based Vanderbilt University Medical Center aims to promote nurse well-being and resilience through the creation of a new leadership position and a relaunched committee, the hospital said March 30. 

The medical center's nurse wellness committee first launched in 2002 but was paused at the start of the pandemic. The relaunched committee will work closely with the hospital's employee assistance program to raise awareness about existing wellness resources and identify other opportunities to promote nurse wellness. 

Vanderbilt will also create a new position, director of nurse safety and well-being, to support these efforts. 

"We not only want the best nurses to join us, but we also want them to stay and design their careers here," Vanderbilt's Executive Chief Nursing Officer Marilyn Dubree, MSN, RN, said in a news release. "We do this by building an environment of resilience and well-being where nurses thrive."
