Fairview Ridges Nurse Speaks, Shines at National
Congratulations to Cheryl Langford, RN, Clinical Informatics Specialist and Endoscopy Nurse Manager at Fairview Ridges Hospital. Cheryl was elected April 6 to the Nominating and Leadership Development Committee (NLDC) of the Association of periOperative Registered Nurses (AORN).
As part of the election process, Cheryl developed and presented a speech to several thousand people during a national candidate forum. She credits the public speaking skills she learned through a Fairview Organizational Development and Learning class with giving her the confidence to shine on stage.
“My continued enthusiasm and passion for perioperative nursing motivated me to run for the NLDC,” says Cheryl. “I’ll strive to use my leadership and perioperative expertise to encourage, motivate, and influence others to grow personally and professionally as I network, collaborate, and advocate for excellence and safety for our perioperative nursing practice and our patients.”
AORN represents the interests of more than 160,000 perioperative nurses by providing nursing education, standards, and practice resources to enable optimal outcomes for patients undergoing operative and other invasive procedures. The responsibilities of the NLDC are to solicit and receive nominations for potential candidates for all elected positions, prepare and present a slate of candidates to serve for all elected positions, and establish effective processes for the development of members to serve in leadership roles at all levels of AORN.
