Meet Our Nursing Leaders: Deborah Tinker MSN, RN
Director, Ambulatory Nursing
University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics
Why do you enjoy working for UW Hospital and Clinics?
I enjoy working at UW Hospitals and Clinics for the wide range of opportunities the organization has provided me for many years, the excellent support no matter what my role, and the gift to learn from the leaders, patients, people, processes and organization.
Ambulatory care nursing is a complex, multifaceted specialty that encompasses independent and collaborative practice. I am constantly amazed at the depth of compassion, excellence, accountability, respect, innovation and integrity the UW Hospital and Clinics ambulatory nursing staff, within the interdisciplinary teams, brings to the patient and family experience every patient, every time.
