Save the Date: Gallup Survey Release on Nursing Leadership

On Wednesday, January 20, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation will release the results of the first-ever large-scale Gallup Survey to explore the views of leading stakeholders about nurses’ ability to influence health reform and improve health care in the United States. The survey, Nursing Leadership from Bedside to Boardroom: Opinion Leaders’ Perceptions, provides valuable information about the perception of nurses as leaders and change-makers by key players in health care, business, government and higher education.

The survey will be released at a news briefing from 9 a.m. – 10 a.m. at the National Press Club in Washington, DC, immediately followed by a one-hour discussion of the results by a panel of local and national experts, and Robert Wood Johnson Foundation leaders and nurses. Speakers will include:
  • Risa Lavizzo-Mourey, president and CEO of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation
  • Frank Newport, editor-in-chief of The Gallup Poll.
The panel discussion will be moderated by Susan Hassmiller, senior advisor for nursing at RWJF. Speakers will include:
  • Mary Naylor, professor at the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing, director of NewCourtland Center for Transitions and Health and program director of RWJF's Interdisciplinary Nursing Quality Research Initiative
  • Patricia Gerrity, associate dean at Drexel University’s College of Nursing and Health Professions, director of 11th Street Family Health Services and RWJF Executive Nurse Fellow
  • Richard Hader, chief nursing officer of Meridian Health at the Jersey Shore University Medical Center
  • Beverly Malone, CEO of the National League for Nursing and National Advisory Council Member for RWJF’s Nurse Faculty Scholars program
