Nancy Holecek, Senior Vice President, Patient Care Services, and Chief Nursing Officer, Barnabas Health, was selected as one of the New Jersey League for Nursing’s (NJLN) "Legendary Leaders in Nursing." Ms. Holecek was chosen for her professional accomplishments and years of support she has given to the nurses of New Jersey during her distinguished career. She will be awarded at the organization’s 100th anniversary at the 2015 NJLN Nurse Recognition Awards Gala on November 6 at the Pines Manor in Edison.

Throughout her nursing and administrative career, Ms. Holecek has enhanced and improved health care quality and education while advancing the profession of nursing. She is responsible for creating and implementing many System-wide initiatives which have standardized nursing clinical practice and policy throughout Barnabas Health. Some of these initiatives include the Professional Practice Council comprised of nursing staff throughout the System and numerous nursing and multidisciplinary collaboratives which standardize clinical care, education and research for our specialty areas. Twenty active subcommittees are charged with exploring new initiatives in clinical care, reviewing evidence-based information, translating current research into practice, policies and procedures, while networking to share ideas. Through their planning and intervention, a standard of care has been developed that embraces quality and safety.

In addition, numerous system-wide patient experience initiatives have been created under Ms. Holecek’s leadership, assuring that our patients and loved ones are cared for in the most compassionate and empathetic environment possible. A succession planning program for our future nurse leaders has also been developed as well as a care coordination program that is addressing a seamless approach to patient care across the continuum. These initiatives, along with many more, differentiate Barnabas Health Nursing while defining one of the largest nursing departments in the State of New Jersey.

For 100 years, NJLN has been promoting excellence through education, and recognizing excellence in performance. The organization acknowledges nurses, like Ms. Holecek, who foster the development and improvement of nursing services and nursing education.
