Flash mob energizes OCN fundraiser themed ‘Every Nurse Is a Leader’

The Oregon Center for Nursing reminded more than 200 attendees that “Every Nurse Is A Leader” during its Sept. 28 fundraiser breakfast. The event, held at the Oregon Zoo in Portland, raised more than $100,000 to support OCN’s work.

Mary Sorteberg, RN, spouse of Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.), spoke at the event about her work as an advocate for nursing and the important role nurses play every day.

Denise Fall, RN, Legacy Good Samaritan Medical Center Kern CCU nurse manager, spoke about her involvement in OCN’s leadership activities and how she has embraced leadership in her nursing career.

University of Portland School of Nursing Students entertain the audience with an original song and dance.

The morning ended with a surprise “flash mob” comprised of University of Portland School of Nursing students who serenaded the audience with an original composition “Together We Can.” The tune was written by University of Portland associate director of music Maureen Briare, RN, BSN.

“We had a wonderful time planning this event,” said OCN executive director Mary Rita Hurley, RN, MPA. “This was a wonderful and timely opportunity to showcase all of the ways that nurses are leaders in Oregon.”
