In the two years since joining Mon Health System, Atkinson has made significant impact on elevating nursing practice, ensured the safety of staff and patients through COVID-19, built solid relationships with providers and community members, and expanded the new graduate nursing pipeline through the implementation of the Mon Scholars Program and partnership with the WVJC School of Nursing at Mon Health.
