Kathleen Bartholomew, RN, MN

Does your organization or hospital need a celebrated TEDx Talk speaker, author, and nurse visionary to inspire your next event?

Kathleen has been an international keynote speaker and culture expert for
over 20 years educating hospital boards, physicians, and nurses on
leadership, culture, teamwork, and patient safety. She uses the power of
story and her strong background in sociology to illuminate and transform the
healthcare culture.


Kathleen has published numerous articles and authored
“Speak Your Truth: Proven Strategies for Effective Nurse-Physician
Communication”, “Ending Nurse-to-Nurse Hostility”, and coauthored
“Charting the Course”; and “The Dauntless Nurse: Communication
Confidence Builder”.


Her TEDx talk challenges our covert belief that some
people are more important than others. With a call to integrity, and a passion
for healing, Kathleen is a visionary thought leader, Op-Ed writer, and blogger
for My American Nurse.
