Prior to her current role at Marsh, Nora was a Lead Nurse Practitioner (NP) in a Streamline Care Unit for a large Toronto hospital. Within this sub-unit of the hospital’s General Pediatrics center, Nora developed and implemented strategies to streamline the care delivery model and reduce the overall length of stay for patients.
As a Lead Nurse Practitioner (NP), Nora also assisted with clinical implementation and role development of the NPs in the hospital’s Emergency Department. In fulfilling her mandate, she more fully integrated the NP role within the department and successfully managed risks associated with overcrowding and bottlenecking to reduce overall length of patient stay and improve patient throughput (the time it takes the patient to admit the patient to Emergency) within the organization.
