Ariel Marie Gilbert, RN BSN
Vision for Neuroscience Nursing:
My vision for neuroscience nursing is that each patient is provided the highest quality treatment and care. I envision our nurses collaborating with one another and continuing to building professional relationships. Through AANN, and the connections made through educational offerings and resources provided, we as neuroscience nurses will be the first to identify gaps in knowledge and practice. I envision mentorship that promotes inquiry from newer nurses, creating collaboration and focused results. I foresee neuroscience leaders stamping their impression of integrity, alacrity, and excellence. Through these foreseeable intentions, our neuroscience patients with have the highest quality guidelines implemented.
Vision for the Association:
My vision for AANN is that we, as current neuroscience nurses, may encourage, inspire, and lead new nurses to maximize their own potential in neuroscience. Through a structured and approachable mentorship, our neuroscience leaders may continue to flourish in their knowledge and education, while they inspire new, innovative minds. I envision a true succession planning that would encourage professional relationships, higher quality advancements for our patients and a pathway for continued prosperity in the organization.
Accomplishments in Professional Positions:
Accomplishments that I have achieved as a neuroscience nurse include a poster presentation at the Pediatric Neuro-Oncology Basic and Translational Research Conference for the Society of Neuro-Oncology.
Accomplishments in Leadership Positions:
Accomplishments that I have achieved in leadership include becoming a member of AANN directly following obtaining my BSN. I have served as the secretary for my local chapter for one year and I am a reviewer for the Journal of Neuroscience Nursing.
