      Joy Peters’s inspiration to join the profession of nursing came from the influences of her father as well as the tragic passing of her sister from a car accident. She saw firsthand how the nurses who cared for her sister, as well as for them as a family, impacted her through the kindness, compassion, and support they provided to them as a family unit. She had several mentors who shaped her professionally, guiding her to a path of nursing leadership. She has a passion for patients and is an advocate for patient experience. She led her organization to achieve prestigious ANCC Magnet Recognition®, which they were able to navigate during the pandemic which is even more inspiring. Joy is currently the chief nursing officer (CNO) for both Jefferson Hospital as well as Canonsburg Hospital part of the Allegheny Health Network in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
