Nursing Journal Spring 2022

When you read this journal, I hope you see yourself and some of the roles you played in fighting this pandemic. Take some time to reflect and remember the good and the painful, the stressful  moments and the quiet moments. What has been your source of pride during these past two years? I hope some of the moments that made you proud will be similar to my own – that no matter that challenges we face, UCSDH nurses support each other and work together to provide excellent care for our patients. Thank you to every member of the UCSDH team for your courage, perseverance, and kindness.

With Gratitude, 

Margarita Baggett, MSN, RN, Chief Clinical Officer, UC San Diego Health
