Linda Q. Everett Featured as a Nurse Leader to Honor

Kent State University nursing alumna Linda Q. Everett, Ph.D., RN, NEA-BC, FAAN, was featured as a “Leader to Honor” in the October, 2015, edition of Nurse Leader magazine.

In the article, Dr. Everett talks extensively about the path she chose to become an influential person in nursing and healthcare, as well as how she developed her leadership style.

“My goal was to be a chief nursing officer (CNO). To achieve this goal, I knew I had to return to school for a BSN,” she said. “Through my studies at Kent State University, I quickly realized I needed to develop business skills—finance, strategic planning, and communication to name a few.”

Dr. Everett is a past president of the American Organization of Nurse Executives. She has held numerous top executive positions in healthcare and academic settings.
