Professional Practice Committee (PPC) Leaders elected

The Professional Practice Committee (PPC) comprised of Staff Nurse NNU/WHC Union members - representing the various nursing practice areas at WHC - met for six hours on Thursday August 4, 2011. It was their first meeting and among other business, they elected

  • Chair - Lori Marlowe, RN - 4D
  • Co-Chair - Erica Ward, RN - 3H
  • Secretary - Charmaine Noumbissi, RN - 3NE

The PPC members will be delivering PPC binders to every nursing unit/department where there are NNU bargaining unit members. When they come by your Unit, please welcome them as they will be introducing themselves to you. There will be much more news coming from their committee work. The Union will also develop a dedicated web page to the PPC on our web site and have created a dedicated email address ( so every RN in our NNU/WHC bargaining unit can email their specific professional issues. The PPC can track, assess, evaluate, and recommend solutions/changes to management for improvement in professional practice at WHC. These PPC members are your RN colleagues for whom you voted in the mid June 2011 staff nurse elections. Visit this site often as the PPC will be reporting summaries of their work and progress. They encourage and welcome your input.
