Linda Gregory, RN, BSN, MSN candidate
Manager, The Coalition for Nursing
Careers in California
New Leadership at the Coalition for
Nursing Careers in California
Linda D. Gregory, RN, BSN,
has been named Manager of the Coalition for Nursing Careers
in California (CNCC), replacing Susan Cheney, RN.
Over the last three years Coalition members have developed
web site and the Nurse Ambassador program. Gregory will
continue with efforts to build an adequate and diverse nursing
workforce for California. Her immediate priorities will
focus on the dissemination of a newly created Public Service
Announcement (PSA) and building community partnerships to
ensure that the new California workforce is representative
of the state.
She will also focus on the continued development of the chooseNursing.com
web site. The web site is a resource to those young people
seeking information about a career in nursing. It encourages
higher education as well as promotes nursing as an exciting
and financially rewarding career with unlimited opportunities.
Gregory will also concentrate on The Ambassador
for Nursing Program, designed as a "call-to-action"
outreach for nurses to educate and influence the public, and
particularly young people's perception of nursing.
As a Kaiser Permanente employee for 18
years, Gregory most recently held the position as Nurse Outreach
Manager for the East Bay Service Area. This role was significant
in facilitating an internal outreach for nursing staff and
managers and the communication of the Nursing Pathways as
a means to empower nurses and positively influence the practice
work environment. Gregory participates in community health
promotion by volunteering at Kaiser Permanente sponsored Health
Fairs and Annual Health Education Fairs sponsored by Allen
Temple Baptist Church. She is an active member of the Association
of California Nurse Leaders, Honor Society of Nursing, Sigma
Theta Tau International, The National Black Nurses Association,
and the Bay Area Black Nurses Association.
