President's Message

Welcome to NCAHQ!

Message from the President 

The breadth of experience within the North Carolina Association for Healthcare Quality is phenomenal. Within our membership and Board of Directors, we have experts from across the state representing all healthcare settings. As an organization we are improving Healthcare Quality in North Carolina through education opportunities, networking and collaboration.

As leaders in Healthcare Quality, we guide improvements in care for the patients we serve. In our profession of Healthcare Quality improvement, we have the tools to help our healthcare colleagues develop the best processes to provide excellent care to our patients. The development of the tools within our personal wheelhouses is enhanced by learning and working with others in Healthcare Quality. Our members reach out to others across the state and are not limited to the silos of employment, and to see this collaboration is amazing to me. 

Being a professional in healthcare quality has provided me with opportunities to see unique perspectives as I work with all disciplines in the various healthcare settings. I am grateful to be a member of this organization and to work with so many humble experts in healthcare quality. As the President of the NCAHQ, I will build on the foundation set by the preceding leaders. As a team, the Board of Directors will lead our organization in membership growth, regional networking, and educational experiences. 

Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to serve you over the next year!

Tina Schoen, MBA, BSN, RN, NEA-BC, CPHQ
