Course Testimonial
Do you feel that the course met the identified objectives?  Please explain.  Most definitely!  The content was up to date, easy to follow and Cindy was able to present the information in a very “real world” way.  You can tell when someone knows how to talk the talk because they have “walked it”.
Would you recommend this course to others? Yes! I will be introducing this organization benefits to our facility’s directors /Administrators as a support and program to assist our DONs with their professional development. Being able to give our leaders resources like NADONA will hopefully decrease turn-over and burn out that so many DONs are faced with.
What would you suggest to make the content of this program better?  I don’t really have any suggestions to the program.  The length of courses was appropriate, the content was spot on, and Cindy taught, explained and delivered the message great! – Margaret Abbott, VP of Clinical Operations, Wellington Healthcare
