Welcome to Nursing the System 

where nurses learn

to lead healthcare change 

without burning out.

To change the world, you must change the world's systems.

Systems thinking is a cognitive framework, a language, and a set of tools you can use to see real problems and design real solutions  - solutions that last.

With systems thinking, Change Makers:
  • See problems clearly, so we move in the right direction

  • Identify our unique contribution, so we make a real difference

  • Lead effectively, so our teams take action and feel supported

Hey there,

I'm Dr. Claire Phillips, an ER Nurse turned Healthcare Change Specialist.

I founded Nursing the System because I believe that systems change tools in the hands of nurses will be a game changer.

You don't necessarily need to spend more years in the classroom and thousands of dollars in tuition to make an impact. Wherever you are on your change maker journey, we have tools to support you.
