Message from the Chief

There is no better place to be a nurse than Stanford Hospital & Clinics and no better time in our distinguished history than now to be part of our team. We are innovating in nursing practice and impacting the lives of our patients everywhere that nursing care is delivered.

Stanford's national and global leadership in the new era of health and health care provides unprecedented professional opportunities for nurses. Whether at the bedside or in outpatient settings throughout the growing Stanford network of care, nurses have a critical role to play in achieving our transformational vision.

As a nurse for over 34 years, I am tremendously proud of the extensive contributions my colleagues here are making to patient care. We share a deep personal commitment to advancing the role of nurses throughout our organization, as individuals and as a Magnet-designated institution striving continuously for the highest standards of our profession.

Nurses heal with science and compassion for each patient, every time. No other group is part of a patient's journey at each step of the way. The opportunity we have to make a difference inspires me every day. I hope that you too will find fulfillment in being part of our outstanding Stanford nursing team.

Nancy Lee, RN
Vice President, Patient Care and Chief Nursing Officer
