Dr. Maria W. O'Rourke: Chief Strategy Officer
Maria O'Rourke, RN, DNSc, FAAN, FAAHC is a nationally known expert on the use of the professional role within an interdisciplinary team with special expertise in the use of the role of the registered nurse. She was instrumental in rewriting the California Nursing Practice Act in 1974, and published the first paper on its implementation, which served to guide the profession in the appropriate use of the professional RN. Throughout her career she has provided service and education with quality learning programs, which send a clear and consistent message about the professional RN role and the expectations for the performance. Her "Back to Basics" approach about role based accountability paints a clear picture of the pivotal decision making role the professional role plays in the delivery of quality patient care, and sets the stage for building strong role relationships within the clinical team.
She received her BS in Nursing from Boston University, and her MS and Doctor of Nursing Science from the University of California, San Francisco. Dr. O'Rourke was selected in 1977 as an NLN Robert Wood Johnson Fellow in Public Policy, elected as a Fellow in the American Academy of Nursing in 1985, awarded the Distinguished Alumni Award for Boston University School of Nursing in 1986, and certified as a healthcare consultant by American Association of Healthcare Consultants in 2000. Through her dedication and extensive work, she has garnered several nominations for prestigious honors, such as the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organization (JCAHO) John M. Eisenberg Award for Patient Safety and Quality, and the Association of California Nurse Leaders (ACNL) Best Practice in Clinical Practice Award. She has held a variety of roles in service and education including Clinical Nurse Specialist, Director of Staff Development and Research, UCSF Faculty, UCSF Assistant Dean for Clinical Affairs at SFGH and Vice President of Patient Care Services.
