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.

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

Kristene Diggins, DNP, RN, is a nurse practitioner with a Family and Geriatrics specialty. She and her husband work with Wycliffe Bible Translators. Kris teaches for several universities online, including University of Phoenix, and manages professional practice for a retail health company.
