Norton Healthcare Institute for Nursing

The Norton Healthcare Institute for Nursing was born out of a committee established by Tracy E. Williams, DNP, R.N., senior vice president and system chief nursing officer, in 2008. Its purpose is to centralize nursing core orientation across the Norton Healthcare system. The Institute for Nursing concept is to be the formative structure for professional growth of Norton Healthcare’s nurses.
