OSU Health System Nursing Leadership Team

The Nursing Executive Council (NEC), chaired by The Ohio State University Health System CNE, serves as the key decision-making, strategic planning and coordinating body on behalf of all nurses and nursing staff at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center.
