picWelcome to the Vanderbilt Tullahoma-Harton Hospital (VTHH) nursing website! My name is Marilyn Smith, DNP, MSN, RN, NE-BC and I am honored and proud to serve as your Chief Nursing Officer. The nursing culture at VTHH is one in which nurses collaborate with other disciplines to make decisions about the care they provide for their patients, families, and the community. At VTHH we are committed to creating an environment that promotes trust, collaboration, and excellence. Our nurses are empowered to improve their professional practice and the outcomes of their patients. I am grateful to be serving at VTHH where I am able to advocate for and be the voice for our nurses. My goal is to continue fostering an environment wherein nurses play an active role in making the decisions that affect their practice and ultimately drive quality, compassionate, and safe care for our patients.
