Joel Moore

Genesis Medical Center Chief Nursing Officer Joel Moore, MSN, RN, soon will represent several Midwestern states on the board of directors for the American Organization for Nursing Leadership, a professional organization of nurse leaders. 

Mr. Moore — who has spent 24 years in nursing, 15 of which as a leader — was elected by the organization’s membership to serve a three-year term beginning Monday, Jan. 1, according to a news release. He will represent Region 6, which includes Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota and South Dakota. 

In his bid to become an AONL board member, Mr. Moore ran on the platform of well-being and belonging for nurses. 

“These are challenging times in health care. Our nursing workforce is fragile and the pressures felt by our nurse leaders is immeasurable,” Mr. Moore said in the release. “Now, more than ever, connecting with one another is essential. The community of nurse leaders that AONL has built is exactly that opportunity to connect with each other, as together, we reshape our profession.”

AONL is composed of more than 11,000 nurse leaders who work in hospitals, health systems, academia and other care systems. Since 1967, it has guided nurse leaders through professional development, advocacy and research that advances nursing leadership practice and patient care, the release states. AONL also is an affiliate of the American Hospital Association.
