ABSTRACT: Teamwork is a widely used term to describe two or more people working together well. This article describes a special kind of teamwork in nursing—when nurses come together in a supportive way that enables them to be more than they could be alone to accomplish difficult tasks and provide the best in patient care and healthcare leadership.

In Brief

“When nurses work together, no task is insurmountable.”
