National Nurse Leader of the Year, Dorcas Walton, RN

Compassion, determination, intellect. Kaiser Permanente nurses do a difficult job while delivering exceptional care to members during some of the most trying times of their lives. They lead, they innovate. And they do it every single day of the year.

Kaiser Permanente’s 24,000 Northern California nurses deliver care in hospitals and doctors’ offices, on the phone, and at members’ homes. They are clinicians. They are researchers, teachers, and scientists. Their care improves the health of our communities and our nation.

In honor of Nurses Week May 6-12, meet 13 Northern California nurse role models who exemplify the best in nursing at Kaiser Permanente.
