The Art of Nursing

Nursing is often referred to as the art of science, knowledge and caring. At GBMC HealthCare we celebrate the Art of Nursing and each of its components through our Nursing Recognition Program.

Each year we recognize nurses in the following categories:

  • Diversity in Nursing
  • Clinical Assistant Support Award
  • Nurse Clinician of the Year
  • Nursing Evidence-Based Practice Award
  • Mrs. H. Norman Baetjer, Jr. Nursing Graduate of the Year
  • Patient- and Family-Centered Care Award
  • Nurse Leader Award

Partnership with Matt Stover

What does a former football player have to do with nursing?

Many times throughout his career, Super Bowl Champion Matt Stover was told that he was "just" a kicker. It didn't matter how many game-winning field goals he kicked, his title still came with a caveat. Sound familiar?

In 2018, GBMC Nursing has engaged Matt as part of our team. He's been working with us in training sessions to help us become the same kind of tight-knit team that allowed him to win two Super Bowls. He is now passionate about helping us create nursing leaders with a focus on:

  • How to Build Our Teams
  • How to Develop Leaders
  • How to Hold Our Teams Accountable
  • How to be Engaged with Care
We will continue to partner with Matt in 2019 because he's helping our nursing leaders create a culture of ownership and accountability. Will you join us?

Our CNO

JoAnn Z. Ioannou, DNP, MBA, RN, NEA-BC

Senior Vice President of Patient Care and Chief Nursing Officer

JoAnn joined GBMC HealthCare as Senior Vice President of Patient Care and Chief Nursing Officer in September 2015. Dr. Ioannou previously served as Director of Neurosciences/Psychiatry Nursing at The Johns Hopkins Hospital. In addition, Dr. Ioannou has held various leadership roles in the Department of Medicine at Johns Hopkins, including Nurse Manager and Assistant Director of Medical Nursing. She earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from Towson University, a Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing from Villa Julie College, and a Master of Science Degree in Nursing, a Master of Business Administration Degree, and a Doctor of Nursing Practice Degree from The Johns Hopkins University.

Dr. Ioannou is passionate about the future of GBMC nursing. She and the GBMC nursing leadership team are always working to foster a culture of ownership and accountability. At GBMC, nursing careers flourish and nurses are excited to function at their highest scope of practice. Mentorship and interdisciplinary teamwork allow for a workplace that is constantly fostering leaders.

Dr. Ioannou feels strongly that with proper mentoring, nurses can grow their careers and propagate a culture of autonomy. The introduction of the Professional Excellence Model (PEM) is helping us achieve this. The PEM model includes the following:

  • New positions added to create more opportunities for career growth
  • Clear tracks will be laid out for professional development
  • Improved care when each level is able to operate at the top of their licenses
  • Assistant Directors will get involved by attending hospital-wide committees
  • Managers will focus on being unit-based and mentoring and growing their staff
  • Directors can focus on strategic planning

The goal is to keep staff engaged and proactive. Our nurses see a clear path to accomplishing their professional goals.
